FLORENCE, S.C. – FMU students, faculty and staff are invited to participate in a leadership think tank designed to identify, enlist and cultivate future student leaders.
The think tank, coordinated by Teresa Ramey, dean of students, will be held in the Smith University Center on Wednesday, April 11.
The sessions will begin at 4 p.m. and wrap up at approximately 6 p.m.
Participants will be divided into groups and assigned to session rooms where they will discuss the recruitment and retention of student leaders.
“This is a great way for us to strategize and plan for the future with the help of the students, faculty and staff,” Ramey said. “It is important that we find ways to prepare students for their careers and life once they walk out of this university.”
Following this session, there will be a panel discussion.
Jay Dowd, FMU vice president for development and executive director of the FMU Foundation, Jo Angela Edwins, assistant professor of English and assistant coordinator of the English Composition Program and Patrick Jones, FMU senior political science student make up the panelists for this session.
