Leadership Academy One Read

33 Men by Jonathan Franklin is this year’s Academy One Read book. 33 Men is the story of the 33 miners trapped in Chile’s San Jose copper mine for 69 days in 2010 and the international effort to save them. Leadership, resilience and selflessness emerged in the mine and among the rescuers. To participate, pick up a copy of 33 Men in the Academy (W1025 Lafferre), read the book and attend one of two book discussions next semester (dates TBA). This is not a hard read, but it is fascinating – not only from the leadership perspective, but also the engineering used in the rescue. Academy enrollees receive 20 points for participating, but the One Read is open to all students, faculty and staff in the College.
