About the Jepson Leadership Forum

The University of Richmond's Jepson School of Leadership Studies presents a series of programs each year where knowledgeable speakers explore leadership topics around a theme. Programs are free and open to the public and give students and the community an opportunity to interact with national and international leaders and scholars.

Past themes for the Forum include The Common Good, Lincoln's Legacy of Leadership, Global Leadership and International Challenges, The State of Public Debate, and Leadership in the Arts.

Events often give audience members an opportunity to interact with speakers through book signings and receptions. Registration is required.
