In this semester we will be shifting focus a bit from the work we have been doing so far into thinking about leadership. As you will see we will continue work on the DreamIT projects (no they never go away) but will expand our horizons somewhat. Specifically these are the strands we will be exploring:


  1. Defining leadership goals & becoming a Tempered Radical (January 19 – March 7)
  2. Developing a professional presence & presenting at a national conference (March 7 – April 17)
  3. Developing a Personal Manifesto (April 17 – May 16)


THIS I BELIEVE (May 16 – July 7)
