In July, the Board of Division Coordinators held a meeting at the National Office. As always, I found the time spent with colleagues from around the country to be interesting and thought provoking. This meeting was particularly interesting because it focused on leadership. Three major themes emerged:
  1. Defining the type of leadership needed to meet the challenges facing our professions;

  2. Bringing about change in academic preparation, professional service, and treatment of individuals with communication disorders through leadership; and,

  3. Building new leaders within the special interest divisions.

I found myself thinking about the awesome opportunities faculty members in programs across the country have for encouraging our students to assume leadership roles in communication sciences and disorders. Are we taking advantage of these opportunities? Are we recognizing leadership development as one of the responsibilities of the academy?
