The 8th Annual Fall Reception and Colloquium for the MPA and MS in Leadership Programs at Roger Williams University will feature an important theme for today’s society: “Leadership Education for Sustaining the Public Good.” The colloquium will feature Megan Hughes, Executive Director of YearUp, an innovative educational program for urban youth directed at creating opportunities to learn and advance, and to close the opportunity divide. Additionally, the Blackstone Valley Community Action Agency YouthBuild participants will present their software-generated 3D pictures of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, structures which they found abandoned and chose to redesign.
The reception will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by introduction of the outstanding classes of 2013 and 2014 graduates from the MPA program. The 8th Annual Fall Reception and Colloquium will be held at 40 Fountain Street in Providence, Rhode Island. Donation is $10 at the door. Students with ID may attend for free. Catered appetizers are provided.
