Inaugural Doctoral Cohort Pauses to Celebrate Achieving the First Program Milestone!
June 09, 2014
On Saturday, June 7, at noon, the doctoral students in the Leadership Studies inaugural cohort met to celebrate an initial victory: successful completion of the first semester of courses: 2 down and 19 to go! The sumptuous Magnolia Luncheon provided at Ralph & Kacoo's Restaurant in Bossier City, LA provided the perfect atmosphere for the doctoral students to share their reflections on the past semester, along with their dreams for the future. At least five family members joined the celebration. Also in attendance were members of LSUS's administration and faculty: Dr. Paul Sisson, Acting Chancellor; Dr. Douglas Bible, Interim Dean of the College of Business, Education, and Human Development; Dr. Pat Doerr, Interim Education Department Chair; Dr. Iris Johnson, Leadership Studies Program Director; and two of the three faculty members who are teaching or have taught the first four courses in the program: Dr. Sanjay Menon and Dr. Emmanuel Clottey. [Krystal Hinerman, the statistical methods instructor for the program, was unable to attend.]
While the inaugural cohort is taking two additional courses this summer (ED 805 Social Justice and Diversity and ED 844 Resource Allocation and Development), applicants for the second doctoral cohort, which will begin taking classes this fall, will soon begin interviews to complete the application process.
