“Ethical Leadership Podcasting: Engaging Dialogue with the Thomas More Community” Presented by Anthony Schumacher, Ph.D.
Awarded a President’s Faculty Innovation Grant as a faculty-driven research/project.
Schumacher’s research involves the incorporation of a practitioner interview into an online course. He interviewed President of Master Provisions Roger Babik, for Ethical Leadership Studies 640 (nonprofit leadership), a course in the Master of Arts in Ethical Leadership. During the interview, Babik discussed the importance of a mission statement and how his organization makes decisions based on that mission, the opportunities/challenges he sees daily as a leader, the role of volunteers, and what his organization needs from the community. Students were surveyed and their feedback will be utilized to determine if additional practitioner interviews will be incorporated into TMU’s Master of Arts in Ethical Leadership courses.
