"Dr. Barry will share information on the importance of serving for the common good," said Ramona Curtis, director for the Academy for Leader Development and Civic Engagement. "His insight into the linkage of resources, which build bridges across communities, is empowering."

The Academy for Leader Development and Civic Engagement was established in 2004 by the Division of Student Life at Baylor University. Each semester the Academy for Leader Development will host the Leadership Seminar Series to introduce students to a variety of complex leadership "needs" in today's society

Each series is devoted to one of the Academy's leadership concentrations: leadership and contemporary social issues; leadership in public life; leadership in the church; and leadership through private enterprise.
