Lessons in Leadership

Lessons in Leadership is UCO’s unique speaker series which features outstanding local, state and national leaders from a variety of backgrounds once a week. Students who choose to take the course for credit may earn either 1 or 3 credit hours.  This fall semester course focuses on developing your individual leadership capacity and presenting numerous viewpoints and personal anecdotal lessons from varying leaders.

Lessons in Leadership meets Tuesday mornings from 9:30am to 10:45 in Constitution Hall in the Nigh University Center. Each presentation is open to the entire university student body, faculty and staff.
