Support the Myles Martel Lecture in Leadership and Public Opinion
In 2001, Dr. Myles Martel—one of the world's premier leadership communication advisors, who previously served President Ronald Reagan—established an endowment in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Connecticut, his alma mater, in support of the Myles Martel Lecture in Leadership and Public Opinion.
This fund supports the Department of Public Policy in UConn's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for a named lectureship that will feature a speaker who is accomplished in the fields of leadership and public opinion. The lecture provides an opportunity for students, faculty, and business and community leaders to better understand the crucial relationship between communication and leadership.
Previous lecture topics supported by the fund include include "Lincoln, Leadership, and Emancipation" and "Leadership for Civic Renewal: Invigorating America's Civic Life," and featured lecturers have been as diverse as former Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell, Margot Morrell, author of Shackleton's Way; and John Morreall, author and internationally recognized expert of the value of humor in business.
