Google Culture Talk – Tuesday, Oct. 30
4 p.m. at W1004 Lafferre Hall
Gather ’round for our first Leadership Academy CAMPFIRE STORIES — an informal and relaxed experience (with food!) that will feature true stories related to engineering leadership and discussions of the issues and challenges those stories present. Our first gathering will feature Dr. David Hammer, MU professor emeritus of Civil and Environmental Engineering, who will discuss the Flood of ’93 in Missouri and the engineering, ethical and legal implications of that disaster. Come hear the story, ask your questions and join in the discussion that should last 60 to 90 minutes. Academy members receive 10 points for participating, but the session is open to all students in the College.
