During the 2013-2014 academic year, the Centennial Center for Leadership will explore a theme “Justice Matters: Intersections of Leadership.” We invite the community to investigate leadership as an inroad to justice. Join us as we unpack complex issues surrounding justice through critical inquiry, impactful dialogue, and artistic expression. This fall, the CCL will introduce a video competition, which will serve as a central forum for expression. There will be two categories, REAL Talk and REAL Short to which participants can submit their videos. At the conclusion of the competition, the CCL will host a symposium on “Justice and Leadership” to examine issues and discuss solutions raised by the top videos in each category.” For more information on the video competition and upcoming programs click here.
