2013-2014 Academic Theme
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.
Video Competition: The “Justice & Leadership Video Competition” 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. Students, faculty, staff and alums are invited to submit videos no longer than five minutes on a justice topic. Videos should tackle a relevant issue, consider ethical implications, be spoken with an authentic voice, provide a solution, and offer a clear correlation to leadership. Videos are due by Friday, October 11, 12:00 p.m. Click here for video competition guidelines.
The video competition will have two categories: Real Talk and Real Short.
Justice & Leadership Symposium: The symposium will serve as another space to investigate leadership as an inroad to justice by engaging students, community members and faculty. The symposium will be held on November 12, 2013.
Justice, Art, & Leadership: The “Justice, Art, and Leadership” theme serves as a more focused theme, which will be examined throughout the year. In the spring, an event will further showcase the use of art as an avenue for exploring the intersection of justice and leadership.
