Program stresses ethics, integrity
Temple’s new Student Leadership Challenge aims to create the next generation of leaders

During Ainsley Carry’s first week at Temple, the new dean of students took a measure of national and global events and quickly noticed a lack of ethics.

   It was late September 2004, and the news was dominated by reports of the first Enron executives on trial for fraud, CBS’s reliance on forged documents for a report on President Bush’s National Guard service, and Lynndie England, the face of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, being court-martialed for her role in the abuses.

   In response, Carry and the Division of Student Affairs will introduce this fall the Temple University Student Leadership Challenge, a full-scale menu of programming meant to assist students seeking to learn about responsible leadership on campus and beyond Temple. The challenge debuts on Sept. 17 with an all-day Student Leadership Management Conference in the Student Center. [more]
