Jepson Update • Fall 2018

Later this week, the Jepson School Class of 2021 will receive their acceptance letters. Those letters come with a promise: When our students graduate, they will have knowledge and experience to tackle the difficult problems we currently face. This promise is reflected in our programs, such as the Jepson School leader-in-residence, our teaching and curriculum, and our partnerships with Jepson alumni. It’s at the core of our profile-raising initiative, which seeks to engage all members of the Jepson community.

The number of leadership studies students graduating each year has nearly doubled over the past decade as increasing numbers of students have recognized the value of a Jepson degree. In this newsletter, you’ll read about some of the ways we are adapting to meet this demand, including adding faculty and renovating spaces in Jepson Hall. As we innovate, we reaffirm our commitment to educate students both for and about leadership.
