This is not to say that such a revision of the liberal arts curriculum can occur without intentional action. ” The definition provided in this chapter is not intended to be authoritative; within obvious limits, the precise definition of the theme is less important than that the curriculum have a definition of leadership that is a product of general faculty discussion and consensus. This can be achieved by any manner of means, from a 34 J. Thomas Wren faculty retreat to, perhaps better, a lengthy conversation among faculty and students that ultimately yields a conception of leadership that is satisfactory to all.

It’s a means of understanding other human beings . . a universal language that connects us beyond country or culture. Empathy makes us human . .
