Jefferson Alumni Speak with Students for Leadership Live Panel

On Nov.12, 2013, alumni and faculty from across Jefferson Schools came together to speak with students about how to be an effective leader, lead by example in the work place and prepare or advance in careers.

Alumni discussed various decisions and experiences that have led them to their current positions and answered students’ questions in a panel format and small group discussions. This event is part of the Office of Student Life’s Leadership Live titled “One Step at a Time: Breaking Down the Leadership Journey” and was co-facilitated by Cory Miller, assistant director, Alumni Relations.
