The Leadership Colloquium is an annual event sponsored by the Office of Faculty Development. During the colloquium we engage in thoughtful conversation on the importance of visionary leadership on our campus, in the larger community, and the State of Michigan as a whole. A panel of local leaders in various realms and places in leadership discuss their experiences with staying future-oriented, seizing new opportunities, and helping their organization maintain morale, creativity, and momentum.
We hosted the following individuals as our distinguished colloquium discussion panelists:
John Wheeler - Director of Business Development for Orion Construction
Nancy Owens - former Vice President of Human Resources, General Motors International Operations, Shanghai China
Mary Asmonga-Knapp - Trustee of Western Michigan University
Eric Tiller - Vice President, Investments at Raymond James, Kalamazoo MI
Our moderator will be:
Dr. Kay Palan - Dean, Haworth College of Business, Western Michigan University
Every year the current participants of the Academic Leadership Academy showcase their individual leadership projects during the reception that follows the panel discussion.
Projects from 2008-2012 can be viewed on the Academic Leadership Academy page.
