CSU–Pueblo to host author/educator Lloyd Lewan in March

Author, educator, public speaker, and former chairman of the board of Lewan & Associates office technology company Dr. Lloyd Lewan will visit the Colorado State University-Pueblo campus for a variety of events and activities March 11-13 courtesy of the President’s Leadership Program.

Lewan is the third of four speakers in the PLP spring semester lecture series. Currently in its seventh year, the PLP program is one of nine schools to participate in the Colorado Leadership Alliance, a consortium of comprehensive leadership education programs at undergraduate institutions across Colorado. Through shared resources and collaborative efforts, CLA’s focus is to develop the next generation of Colorado's leaders. PLP develops and trains emerging leaders at CSU-Pueblo through a four – year academic leadership program focused on academic and experiential learning. Scholars are given opportunities to obtain leadership experience through mentoring, internships, etiquette training, and presentations by leaders in various fields from government and education to the service sectors.

Lewan is the 2007-2008 and first Leader-in-Residence for the President’s Leadership Class at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Author of To be a Leader: Leadership Beyond Management and Women in the Workplace: A Man’s Perspective, Lewan is a frequent speaker and facilitator on leadership issues, women’s economic development, international trade, business and ethics, and workplace issues.

On March 11, Lewan will present “Leadership as Ethics: Leadership Beyond Management”
to the faculty, staff, students, and community members at 5:15 p.m. on March 11 in the Hasan School of Business Auditorium. A reception will follow his presentation. At 6:30 p.m., he will present “Dare to be a Leader” to the PLP scholars in the HSB Auditorium and participate in the PLP Advisory Board retreat on March 12.

Lewan’s academic work as chairman of the Board and Executive Dean Emeritus for the Institute for Shipboard Education (ISE) has made him a popular visitor on many campuses. ISE is the parent organization of the international Semester at Sea program. His civic agenda includes work with at-risk youth in the Denver area, specifically as chairman of the board of Open Door Youth Gang Alternatives and volunteerism with Children’s Hospital. He has traveled and spoken to numerous groups and organizations around the world. Although Lewan & Associates is now wholly owned by Xerox Corporation, he maintains an office at the company headquarters in Denver.
