Dr. Clayton Christensen Presenting at UVU this Month

The UVU Faculty Senate would like to invite you to a presentation and Q&A with Dr. Clayton Christensen. His visit is a continuation of the senate’s engagement of leading scholars regarding the future of higher education and UVU’s role. Dr. Christensen is a faculty member from the Harvard Business School and is largely recognized as one of the world’s leading management theorists. His work has been cited across the globe and his thoughts on the future of higher education have been heralded as some of the most innovative and thought provoking ideas of the last several decades.

Dr. Christensen’s presentation will be on November 20, 2014 from 3:00-4:30 p.m. in the Ragan Theater. We invite everyone on campus to this extraordinary event and hope departments will coordinate schedules to allow as many employees as possible to attend, while still remaining operational. We are fortunate to have such a world class speaker on campus and feel the audience will walk away with new insights for UVU and a renewed enthusiasm for the work we do here. The links below may help you become more familiar with Dr. Christensen’s work. We look forward to seeing you.
