an art.

leaders how to think outside of the position and expand their
perceptions of leadership with the annual Art of Leadership conference.
Registration will begin at 12:00pm in the J. Wayne Reitz Union. Students
should come prepared to have their concept of leadership altered and
ready to become true masters at the Art of Leadership.
