Lessons in Leadership

Sometimes the most interesting things come out of casual conversations. 

Our leadership team found this to be especially true while talking to alumni and friends of the college on extended video chats, which became more frequent during the COVID-19 pandemic. They soon realized that our community would also benefit from having a bird’s eye view of these intimate discussions. By capturing and sharing these personal conversations about each person’s unique story of ambition, hard work, failure, and success, we could all learn some unique Lessons in Leadership.

Following are a series of personal interviews—both in their entirety and short but important clips—between school representatives and several members of our extended D’Amore-McKim community for the benefit of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
