Winston Center Collaborations
Knowing that the Winston Center cannot encompass all the leadership community has to offer, we have partnered with key centers, departments, and institutes across campus to assure all vital points of ethical leadership are being presented and discussed. Some of our more prominent partnerships include the Lowell Institute’s Lowell Humanities Series, featuring Rebecca Skloot, author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and Campus School Volunteers, featuring Dick and Rick Hoyt, famed father/son marathon team.
