Notice - April 3 Event Cancelled

It is with sadness that I share that we’re canceling the spring Freeman Lecture Series on April 3 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic and in accordance with CDC recommendations. The health and safety of our guests and community was our upmost consideration in this decision. We are hoping to reschedule a time to have Nikki Lerner visit our campus in the future.


The Ross and Fern Freeman Lecture Series was founded in 2014 on the idea that servant leadership not only has the potential to influence societal change, but can also provide both practical and successful management skills that can easily be applied to diverse situations. The series seeks to educate individuals on the various values and applications of leadership by highlighting the servant leadership attributes present in others.
