CCSR Seminar on April 3, 2013

March 18th, 2013 in Seminars/Conferences

On Wednesday, April 3, 2013, the Center for Character and Social Responsibility will be hosting a seminar titled Love and Jazz in Higher Education. The seminar will feature Dean Kenneth Elmore, Boston University, as the key note speaker.

The Center for Character and Social Responsibility is dedicated to exploring the complex relationship between a person’s character and action that reflects a sense of social responsibility. Boston University has a long history of producing civic leaders from Rev. Edgar J. Helms who started the Goodwill Industry in the 1890′s, through Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. to many current students and recent graduates. This is no accident. BU takes the role of creating character and supporting social responsibility very seriously. Kenn Elmore, the Dean of Students, will share with us how the BU approach to student development helps us produce leaders who make a difference in the world.

Kenneth Elmore has served as the Dean of Students at Boston University since 2003, with more than 20 years of experience in higher education. Kenn Elmore has studied Psychology at Brown University; Education in Policy, Planning & Administration from Boston University; and law at New England Law.

The format for the seminar will include Elmore’s presentation, comments from Rev. Dr. Robert Hill, Marsh Chapel Dean, and then an open discussion.

The seminar will be held in Boston University School of Education on April 3, 2013. Visit here for more information.
