Student Members

More than ever, ethical leadership is needed as higher education institutions grapple with multiple threats to their missions, reputations, relationships, and viability. The pandemic, budgets, politics, and demands for racial and social justice within and outside of the academy are straining institutions in ways they have not experienced in decades. Join moderator Michele Ewing, APR, Fellow PRSA, professor at Kent State University; John Diamond, President and CEO, University of Maine Alumni Association and author of the book, Please Delete: How Leadership Hubris Ignited a Scandal and Tarnished a University; and Darryl Lunon, II, Deputy General Counsel and Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer, Georgia Institute of Technology for a conversation about accountability and ethics in higher education — and the role public relations professionals should play in ensuring those stakeholder expectations.
