Franke Leadership Week

About Leadership Week

Franke Leadership Week includes a series of professional development activities for students. The activities include a dinner where students learn proper dining etiquette at a professional meal, in-class speakers, workshops, and small-group discussions on issues important to student career success.

Franke Leadership Week brings heightened awareness to students that classroom knowledge is just part of the equation leading to success. Other skills like communication, ethical decision making, leadership, teamwork, and overall professionalism are equally important and those skills are what Franke Leadership Week highlights.
