Cincinnati. Located in the quiet suburb of Highland Heights,
Ky., just seven miles southeast of Cincinnati, we have become a

Keynote Session: Developing Your Leadership Potential
Robert M. Smith, Ph.D.
Thursday, May 14; 8:45-10:15 a.m.
As auxiliary services leaders, our ability to get things done through others often
depends on our ability to create a vision and engage others in our mission. This
interactive session will introduce us to the core components of personal leadership
and assist us in developing an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses we
have for leadership and change.
In the years before his retirement as president of Slippery Rock University, Dr. Smith led
the university through rapid changes that earned the university various awards and
national distinctions. Dr. Smith has received three teaching awards and has presented at
