Rethinking Leadership: Join the 2015 UCD celebration on April 16

Mark your calendars for University College Day on Thursday, April 16 — a day when students, faculty and staff come together to celebrate the intellectual and community life of Texas Wesleyan University.

All day, we will share the interests and projects that drive our learning experiences, so faculty members are encouraged to redirect students during class times to attend sessions of their particular choices.

This event offers us the opportunity to encourage learning beyond the classroom by linking students’ attendance at sessions to course content or skills as students see the results of their peers’ and professors’ research, collaborative projects and creative endeavors.

Distinguished Speakers on Campus

Our keynote speaker this year is Roger Nierenberg, distinguished conductor and creator of The Music Paradigm. Nierenberg’s program is a groundbreaking, experiential learning event in which he uses the symphony orchestra as a metaphor for gaining insight into organizational behavior, leadership and teamwork and for helping to achieve change for those companies and institutions. 

After his speech, Nierenberg will sign copies of his book Maestro: A Surprising Story about Leading by Listening. Books may be purchased for $19.95 plus tax outside of Martin Hall on the day of the event.

Our alumni speaker this year is Quentin McGown, Tarrant County associate judge and probate master.
