Men's Leadership Series

University Residences launched the Men's Leadership Series (MLS) in 2017, following the success of the Women's Leadership Series. Men who show potential as future leaders are nominated either by a peer, staff or faculty member, or even themselves to be part of this special group.

After the committee reviews all of the nominations, you'll be notified of your acceptance into the next class of MLS.

This year, the Men's Leadership Series will focus learning and leadership opportunities focused on the book, "Well-Being:  The Five Essential Elements" by Tom Rath & Jim Harter

Current Scheduled Events for the 2022-2023 academic year include:

September 25th:  Kick off with Barb Frazee, Assistant Vice Provost for Student Life

October 23rd:  Clay Brizendine, Marketing & Non-Profit Executive and Coach, Executive in Residence

March 5th:  Celebration & Awards Dinner

In addition, 5 sessions will individually explore each of the elements of Wellbeing; Career, Social, Financial, Physical, & Community.

Both WLS and Men's Leadership Series (MLS) conclude in the spring with an awards ceremony and celebration.

It's exciting when we witness new bonds of friendship and professional networking that is mutually beneficial to everyone involved in this unique program.
