AUSTIN, Texas—Renowned political investigative reporter Bob Woodward will be one of six distinguished speakers taking part in a four-day student leadership conference hosted by the Center for Ethical Leadership at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin Jan. 27-30.
Almost 200 undergraduates handpicked from across the United States and Mexico will engage in the intensive leadership training program. The conference aims to cultivate a new crop of young leaders by bringing together educators and students with experienced leaders from diverse backgrounds and engaging them in small-group workshops and social networking events.
“Seeing and hearing inspirational leaders talk about leadership is one way young people develop leadership skills,” said Howard Prince, director of the Center for Ethical Leadership.
With Woodward topping the list, Prince has pulled together an impressive lineup of accomplished speakers who will discuss leadership in the context of issues such as the war on terror, the state of ethics in America and women in developing countries.
