Fall 2016 Leadership Film Series - November 2, 2016


We will be presenting the Fall 2016 edition of the Leadership Film Series on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at 4:45 p.m. (dinner will be served at that time, followed by the film start at 5 p.m.) in the LBJ Student Center, room 3-15.1. We will be screening clips from The Hurt Locker and discussing the film with a panel of student veterans from the Veterans Alliance of Texas State (VATS) as they share their experiences.

This event is a great opportunity to learn more about the experiences of our student veterans, engage in dialogue with your fellow Bobcats, and earn points toward the Medal of Hope and the GOLD BOOK!

If you are interested in attending, be sure to RSVP. This event will be limited because we are serving dinner.

About the Leadership Film Series

The Leadership Film Series provides an opportunity for students to watch movies which reveal aspects of leaders appearing throughout the history of cinema. Screenings are free and open to any member of the Texas State community.

The Leadership Film Series offers an opportunity to observe leadership in action and relate it to one's own leadership style. Following each film, a panel of students, faculty, and staff will engage the audience in a discussion of the film's leadership lessons and implications. The goals of the series include: 
  • exploring what ethical leadership means to different people in different historical periods,
  • critiquing leadership qualities of characters found in popular and historical films, and
  • identifying leadership strategies that result in positive social change either locally and/or globally.
