Please join the Leadership Education MIG for our second annual luncheon on Friday, October 13, 2017. After a brief opening from our featured speaker, participants from international locations and perspectives will have an opportunity to dine together and casually discuss ideas and experiences about the art and science of teaching leadership.

The luncheon provides an ideal space to continue our conversations about what we believe leadership education should include, our roles in preparing our students and each other to lead, and what we, as educators, ought to know and teach about leadership as it relates to various contexts (e.g. cultural considerations, social movements, etc.). Participants will also have an opportunity to recognize this year's winner of the "Most Publishable Leadership Education Paper" award, sponsored by SAGE Publications Inc.
