Welcome from the Board Chair

Gordon Riggle HeadshotWelcome to the Center for Leadership on behalf of the Board of Advisors.

The board members provide advice and counsel to the Chancellor and Executive Director in support of the Center’s Vision and Mission. The Center is a mission driven organization that invests in the leadership potential of all students to develop ethical, impactful leaders. The Center’s unique programs and its affiliated leadership organizations across campus combine to offer all students opportunities to increase their leadership skills.

Our mission is especially timely because we need a new generation of leaders to navigate the complex and rapidly changing challenges of our era. The global community faces shifting geopolitical balances, unprecedented scientific and technological advances, and urgent environmental and social issues. This new world requires leaders with fresh perspectives and innovative approaches. By embracing change and fostering collaborative approaches, this new generation can lead us to a more sustainable and resilient future.

As Chair of the Board, I am honored to be part of an extraordinary team united in our dedication to developing future leaders. The Board of Advisors is proud to work together to support the Center for Leadership in “Shaping Tomorrow’s Leaders.”
