2022 Listen. Learn. Lead Week’s Line-Up Announced
On September 19, 2022 the Baker Center will kick-off this fall’s Listen. Learn. Lead Week with campus partners from across campus including Student Life, Diversity and Engagement, Dean of Students, Division of Student Success and Center for Student Engagement among others.
Listen. Learn. Lead Week is inspired by Senator Baker’s observation that the key to leadership is to be an “eloquent listener.” The week, held each semester, is intended to provide faculty, staff, students and the public with the opportunity to engage in diverse viewpoints about pressing topics. This semester’s theme is “Voting Education & Civic Engagement.” This fall, the week is from Monday, September 19 to Saturday, September 24, 2022.
