Developing Strong, Ethical Leadership in
October 21, 2004
MILWAUKEE – Marquette University will convene key business, religious,
and community leaders from across the Milwaukee area Wednesday
to discuss how to best develop strong, ethical leadership in our
community. The meeting will run from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. in the
Alumni Memorial Union Ballroom on the Marquette campus.
The discussion will be facilitated by Rich Teerlink, retired
CEO of Harley-Davidson Motor Company and author of More Than
a Motorcycle: My Leadership Journey at Harley Davidson ,
and Peter Block, author of The Empowered Manager, Flawless
Consulting, and Stewardship: Choosing Service over Self
This summit is part of a series of conversations hosted
by Marquette's College of Professional Studies with community
leaders to identify how Marquette, through the college, might
serve as an effective resource for sustained ethical leadership
development throughout our local, regional, and international
arenas. In that spirit, this ongoing dialog is intended to gather
insights and counsel from community leaders as Marquette looks
to create a Center for Leadership, which would ongoing provide
resources to cultivate a culture of leadership in the spirit of
service over self.
“We are not here to just create another program, or to suggest
that each organization create a vice president for ethics,” said
Dr. Bob Deahl, Dean of the College of Professional Studies . “The
community has not been, and is not, transformed by mere programs
or a job title. We are here to offer and to ask: ‘How can
we support you in a way that you cannot do on your own, to help
you intentionally and consciously live out a commitment to ethical
leadership in your community, in your job, in your life?”
Marquette 's College of Professional Studies is dedicated to
providing diverse adult learners with a values-based education
that results in a commitment to competently, courageously and
ethically apply themselves to the conscious, effective, lifelong
transformation of their professional situations and personal lives.
The program offers graduate, undergraduate and continuing education
for working adults.
Media are invited to attend the summit. If interested, please
