Student Leadership Collaboration

This fall, for the first time, the Office of Faculty Affairs teamed with the Office of Leadership Development to create a leadership experience for undergraduate students interested in careers in higher education. Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs Kevin Delaney and Director of Leadership Development Lauren Bullock introduced a group of students to a variety of career opportunities in higher education.

Speakers from across the university talked with the group about their own career paths to higher education and the type of work they do here at Temple. Several of the students in the group have already applied to graduate-level programs in higher education administration and hopefully some of these talented students may even find their way back to Temple during their careers.
