The Graduate Leadership Institute, in partnership with the Bass Military Scholars, will host a 3-part workshop series that will share strategies and techniques used by the military in decision-making, effective communication, and reflection using after-action review. Workshops are designed to expand your leadership perspective and provide a framework with actionable tools for applying these approaches to your endeavors at Vanderbilt and beyond. As the series is cumulative, we strongly encourage you to attend all workshops if possible. All sessions will be held in the Central Library, Room 612A, 12:15 – 1:30 pm, and lunch will be provided.
