We give thanks for Sister Veronica Ann Baxter (1928-2014), remembered for her innovative leadership of Marylhurst from 1974 to 1984, when the university transitioned to a co-educational college of lifelong learning.
David McNamee, interim chair of graduate and undergraduate business and director of the Center for Servant Leadership, presented Servant Leadership: Changing Trends in Global Leadership at Oregon Campus Compact's Student Leadership Conference in February 2013.
The conference, A Changing World: Sifting Through the Clutter, provided students with tools and resources to become change makers on campuses and in communities. This two-day conference focused on helping service-minded student leaders, activists and visionaries "sift through the clutter" of modern society, navigate new technology, a multicultural landscape and an interconnected world in order to affect positive change in their local and global communities.
Campus Compact leads efforts to build and strengthen the civic purpose of higher education. When students are engaged in quality curricular and co-curricular student service, service-learning, civic engagement and community-based research they complete college as active, engaged citizens with skills to enact change locally and globally.
