The Long Blue Line

The inaugural BLUE (Building Leadership Understanding & Education) event brought together a powerful group of alumni and current students for a networking extravaganza. More than 40 participants shared professional experiences, discussed frequent career challenges and celebrated varied pathways to success. With a keynote address by Frances Lucas, Ph.D., BLUE included a panel pf alumni — Ashley L. Dean, Ricki R. Garrett, Ph.D., and Hilary Hamblin — who each shared real-world examples of motivation and success within a professional context. BLUE concluded with participants forming small discussion groups and sharing more ideas around approaches to motivation, collaboration and success.
