“Leadership & Ethics Week highlights the underlying themes of what we teach our students every day,” said Jamie Belinne, assistant dean for career services at Bauer’s Rockwell Career Center. “These events will give them the chance of a lifetime — they’ll be able to say, ‘here’s what I think’ and a vice president can offer a real world perspective and open up a dialogue with that student.”
