In the 17th century, Jean Baptiste Lully conducted the musicians of the court of French King Louis XIV, pounding out time with a long staff, until the staff infamously missed the floor and struck his foot— causing his death from gangrene in What is less well-known is that in many places, they continue to play an important part in both politics and society.
In the past, African chiefs ruled because their position was an inherited one. Now, they may be selected by the voters. Either way, they still draw on deeply rooted cultural understandings for their position and authority. Traditional rulers in African settings have the potential to play a stabilizing role in democratic politics, especially in local politics.
According to Momodu E. Maligi, who currently serves as minister for water resources, regularly works with traditional leaders on water and sanitation projects throughout the country. Often it is up to chiefs to represent the community, negotiate for their interests and settle any disputes that arise. In resource-rich areas of Africa, chiefs play an especially important role because they determine land tenure.
The solution, in many places, has been to reform the chieftaincy rather than eliminate it. In Sierra Leone, for instance, chiefs are elected, but like Supreme Court justices in the United States, they serve for life terms. In addition, although most chiefs in Sierra Leone are men, women have the ability to contest for office in some places. As a result, there are a growing number of female, elected chiefs especially at the town and section levels.
It was only when the chiefs of Sierra Leone organized at the local level did communities curtail funerals, which normally call for the public washing of bodies. In addition, chiefs enforced by-laws that helped stop the spread of Ebola. As a result, community members quit hosting strangers in their homes, limited personal contact on public transportation and respected quarantined areas.
Under his leadership, the small community implemented infection control systems that quickly stopped the spread of Ebola in their village. Romeni only adopted infection control measures effectively once Pa Alimony returned to his village as a survivor. In the aftermath of Ebola, he continued to work tirelessly to find support for the registered orphans left in the community. In rural African villages, examples of traditional leadership abound. At the national level, African countries increasingly depend on the leadership of highly educated, technocratic administrators who manage the national economy, interface with global actors, and represent the country abroad.
Nevertheless, despite the advent of a global, high-tech age, the traditional leadership of chiefs, based on the importance of family, community and connections to the land, remains extremely important. By Kelly B. Landis In the fall of , Mark Jenike, associate professor of anthropology, thought he was attending another routine faculty meeting. Jenike had served as the Pieper Professor of Servant Leadership for four years, diving in to learning more about leadership, developing servant leadership opportunities in the Appleton community and leading a course teaching students how to translate their work as volunteers into leadership experience.
Students came, asked for more and from there a small leadership revolution was born. Since those early days, Arau has developed his leadership training portfolio well beyond one band room; he travels nationally and internationally, teaching and training school districts, music students and music teachers about student leadership.
At that fateful faculty meeting, his ears perked up when thenProvost Dave Burrows introduced Arau to his new colleagues and noted his interest in leadership. The students loved it, so I had him come back again. Jenike saw that same eagerness for leadership training in Lawrentians.
Lawrence held a listening session for members of the campus community to share their thoughts and reactions, and Jenike and Abaray heard the outpouring from students. Jenike agrees. At the same time Jenike met Arau, Lawrence announced the hiring of Abaray as the new director of athletics. She majored in anthropology his genuine passion for student success. His office reflects and environmental studies as an undergrad, which were my his blended interests, with books on leadership shelved next areas of interest. Arau developing the whole student-athlete, including their skills found himself drawn to books about leadership for his own as leaders on and off the field.
After Lawrence, he earned his M. Today, Kraemer is back at Kellogg as clinical professor of strategy, where he was voted Professor of the Year in These guiding principles are self-reflection, balance and perspective, true self-confidence and genuine humility. Kraemer draws from his own experiences to offer the new and current generations of leaders these essential principles, guaranteeing memorable and lasting results in their organizations.
He focuses on striving for the five bests: best self, best team, best partnerships, best investment and best citizen. Kraemer lays out a plan for leaders that gradually expands to the whole organization; leaders who focus on their best self will pass that success onto their team and in turn make a difference in the world by becoming the best citizen. So, from Briggs Hall, Alexander Gym and the Conservatory, Jenike, Abaray and Arau came together and hatched a plan to create a formal class on leadership.
The process was collaborative from the beginning. We model respectful engagement and leadership with each other. The course filled up on the first day of registration. They tackled issues like gender and leadership, culture and leadership, and the ethics of leadership.
Students shadowed and analyzed on-campus leaders for a final paper on real-world leadership challenges, reflected on their lessons and leadership topics through weekly journals and worked together on group presentations. The first iteration of Practicing Leadership is part of the burgeoning leadership training on campus. But leadership training at Lawrence, like leadership itself, is a never-ending work in progress and Jenike, Abaray and Arau are excited for the opportunities that await.
Lawrence Undergoing Accreditation Review Routine Requirement Takes Place Every 10 Years Lawrence is preparing for an accreditation review, a process that every major institution of higher learning undergoes. Below, please find answers to some common questions about the process. What is accreditation? Accreditation is a process of review for ensuring that the education provided by colleges and universities meets high standards of quality. There are a variety of benchmarks, and every institution must undergo the full review process every 10 years. Lawrence is in its renewal year. Why does it matter?
Accreditation is a mark of quality assurance. Graduate schools and professional programs expect applicants to have completed an appropriate course of study at an accredited institution. Accreditation is also a process for verifying compliance with federal regulations, eligibility for certain grants and federal funds, as well as encouraging institutional and educational improvement. Who is our accrediting agency? Lawrence is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission HLC , the regional agency that accredits degree-granting institutions in 19 states in the northern and central part of the U.
Regional accreditation is the standard for academicallyoriented nonprofit institutions like Lawrence. What does the accreditation review entail? Accreditation involves a variety of submissions, including documents and evidence, as well as invitations for the public to submit comments to the HLC. Lawrence University is seeking comments from the public about the college in preparation for its periodic evaluation by its regional accrediting agency. The college will host a visit October 1—2, , with a team representing the Higher Learning Commission.
Lawrence University has been accredited by HLC since All comments must be received by August 31, Fall The site visit will take place October 1—2. Fifty years ago, an uncommon feature of Lawrence, the Lawrence University Community Council, was born. It even includes a position on the Lawrence Board of Trustees. LUCC makes decisions that shape the campus for every member of the community; it has the power of the purse, chartering and funding every official student organization.
It hears community concerns, not just from students but also faculty and staff. Class and faculty representatives join a cabinet to compose the LUCC. In the wake of the LUCC elections, Lawrence sat down with four members of the LUCC cabinet to hear their views on the role of LUCC, some of the inner workings, what it means to be a campus leader and the values that inform their approach to leadership. What is your role on LUCC? We approve the recognition of all of the student organizations on campus, appoint the student members of the seven LUCC standing committees and we help a lot with guiding legislation.
I chair the general council and I also sit on the Board of Trustees as a student representative, so I get to be involved in a lot of different spaces. I oversee our budget and the finance committee. We have a little less than half a million dollars at the end of spring term to budget out for the next school year. I deal with all of the funding for all of the student organizations, staying in contact with them.
CODA works to empower the voices of marginalized students on campus, and we partner with a lot of diversity groups, student organizations that have certain affinities for different groups, and we help them with events. Colleen: I currently serve as the finance secretary. I set up meetings with the treasurers of organizations who are requesting funding. I also work with cabinet as a whole in implementing legislation, updating old legislation and just generally. As vice president, I will serve as a leader to the students as well as chairing the finance committee and in general being there to amplify the voices of the students in our community and making sure they are heard by the right people and making sure that we are working together to make changes as necessary.
Lewis: We really hope to be an open forum for people to come in and either bring their own issues or give their input on issues that we have already been discussing. Lauren: I think this model of government for this institution empowers the voices of students. That is the primary concern. A joint network of faculty and staff and students working together for their community as a whole is not the reason I chose to come to Lawrence, but it definitely is a reason that I think people should choose it!
I am going to graduate school now, and I realize how much I am going to miss this ability to work with people in my community to make it a better place. Why did you decide to tackle the responsibility of what sounds like a big job? I have been passionate about having equal opportunities for everyone across campus and advocating for equity of individuals, especially as a student. My own personal identities have led me to be passionate about seeing where there is inequity, and this position has a lot of opportunity to focus on how to make campus more equitable.
Lewis: I have been in a lot of different things. I had been involved in the Volunteer Center, Greek life … I had bits and pieces of all these different things. The previous president had talked to me about potentially running for president, and I decided that made a lot of sense to me. A culmination of all the things I have done, and I thought it would be a good way to continue helping After getting that position and working very closely with the rest of the cabinet, I had a much deeper understanding and respect for the work that everyone is doing; I wanted to further that, which is why I decided to run.
I had my senior year mapped out. And then Lewis did some convincing, and a lot of other people did, too, basically saying that my position on campus is an advocate for students, and where else can I best serve my community? What does being a campus leader mean to you? I was confident that I would at least be able to listen to people, and a big thing that made me feel more comfortable about doing it was when Naomi and I were able to talk about it, and we really felt like we were going be a team rather than president up here, vice president down there. I think that all of the activism or responsibility that I had on campus never seemed to be a role that I needed; it was something that was necessary to do.
Also, I can be critical of myself. I have learned the value of being quiet. Lewis: Yeah, especially with my involvement in sports, I always thought of leadership as leading by example, so if. Colleen: Leadership to me means listening. I think a lot of leadership is using your resources to help other people get their voices heard and to help other people find the right way to further the work that they want to be doing for the community. That was an interesting turning point. You host these events, you have these big discussions and you help with these large movements on campus and people know your name.
You have to get to know their name somehow. And being a chair is having your own vision but also being able to hear from the students and focus your vision on what people need in the community—that is the main goal. We are really all leaders at the end of the day. Different students across campus are role models for different things. Students from all around the country, all different backgrounds, and it is so inspiring to be around them and to be led by them. You will never find a lack of leadership at Lawrence or a lack of students who are willing to do the work that is so important to all of us.
In the coming weeks and months, Colleen will be involved in selecting a cabinet and learning the ropes from Lewis, Naomi and Dean of Students Curt Lauderdale. Lewis, Naomi and Lauren will be bringing their leadership skills and passion for helping others to their lives after Lawrence: Lewis is interviewing for opportunities in consulting, Naomi wants to explore a career in education or education policy and Lauren is heading to graduate school in neuroscience.
Elections to fill the position of vice president-elect will be held before the end of winter term. The Student Senate had been working on the LUCC concept, and that work continued in earnest after I was elected president in my junior year. The idea behind LUCC was to emphasize that there was a campus community at Lawrence, and representatives of the faculty and students should be able to make decisions about the rules governing campus life. I worked closely with Dean Francis Broderick, in particular, to refine a proposal that was put to and approved by students and faculty.
I was then elected the first president of LUCC. Originally, student representatives on LUCC each had one vote and faculty representatives each had two votes. It may seem quaint now, but one of the big issues at the time involved visitation rules for members of the opposite sex in dormitories. There were only single-sex dormitories at Lawrence in the late s. Each dormitory had its own council, and I remember talking with the head of the Trever Hall council about how the visitation rules should be made.
Based on those discussions, I decided the best approach was to have legislation from LUCC allowing each dorm to decide on its own rules within certain constraints. In fact, some dorms allowed each floor of the dorm to decide on their rules. This recognized that different dorms, and even different floors, would have different preferences. It also shared the decision-making with different levels of government— i. Concern with the organization and theory of government has continued throughout my life—as mayor of the City of Brookfield, Wis.
My time at Lawrence gave me an interest and enthusiasm for good government, which has continued for all these years. While I practiced law in the private sector for 31 years, I was involved in government and politics as a volunteer. In , I was elected an alderman in the City of Brookfield and in I was elected mayor. I was re-elected mayor in , and I am running for re-election unopposed this year. After a career of practicing law, I am delighted to serve as mayor of Brookfield!
Growing frustrations with their lack of influence over rules and regulations for student life led the thenexisting student government body, the Student Senate, to propose a new model in Students overwhelmingly approved the proposal in a referendum, and final approval was granted by the faculty in the spring of With both student and faculty representatives, the new LUCC had primary responsibility for all non-academic issues of governance.
This was a period of rapid change in student life at Lawrence, mirrored at colleges all over the country. This photograph shows an early meeting, circa French Professor of American Studies and professor of history. It has also inspired a great show of unity among women, which itself is a clear sign that women are feeling more powerful.
David Gerard, John R. One of our recent economics graduates performed in operas during his time here, and he now runs a company that manufactures and distributes LED lighting.

They represent a central reason why students choose to attend a small college. Each had ended in cataclysm. The Fifth Sun, our world, would be the last, destined to be destroyed completely in a series of great earthquakes.

Support students like Evan with your gift to the Lawrence Fund today! Lawrence has owned the home since and it has a storied past with the campus. It has been used for student housing for more than the past 10 years. A move of any size takes planning, but moving an entire house is a combination of art and science. The process included the installation of steel beams, using a unified hydraulic jacking system to lift the house four feet above the foundation and installing remote-control power dollies and coaster dollies on a track built in the basement.
The house was driven off the foundation to its new site all by remote control. The process involved working not only with DeVooght House and Building Movers, who have expertise in moving historic buildings, but also the City of Appleton, including the forester, to ensure that the project would not cause harm to the trees that line Union Street.

From the time he was first selected for the art commission from among three finalists, he only had 10 months to complete all three projects. This is our hometown. This is where we live. Day with a day of service. Lawrentians volunteered on- and off-campus, heard from speakers and recognized the life and teachings of Martin Luther King Jr.
Off campus, students traveled to nonprofit organizations in Appleton, engaging in activities ranging from sorting donations in support of people with differing abilities and those without permanent housing to engaging kids and the elderly around activities in art, music and dance. They cared for animals at a local shelter and even winterized hoop houses at an urban farm. The campus also heard from Aly Wane, an undocumented organizer originally from Senegal.
His work has focused on antiwar organizing, as well as racial and economic justice issues. He provided a keynote address, Those Who Have Been Left Out, focusing on the need for a better understanding of the concept of citizenship and global citizenship during the evening capstone celebration in Lawrence Memorial Chapel.

Drawing its inspiration from the continually shifting patterns and changes of a kaleidoscope, 15 ensembles seamlessly transitioned from piece to piece, from symphony orchestra to saxophone quartet to choir. These ensembles highlight the musical talents of Lawrence students, each with their own unique sound, through performances ranging from Bernstein to Balinese gamelan. Showcased at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, the minute musical extravaganza entertained a packed house. The audience was made up of Lawrentians, the Appleton community and the families of Lawrentians in town for family weekend.
As meaningful as the performace was to the audience, it was also special to those performing. Performance-goers were treated to a symphony orchestra onstage, choirs singing at the base of the stage and rotating ensembles on the left, right and back balconies. This created a musical immersion; the audience focused on the sound without seeing where it is coming from. This was the sixth iteration of Kaleidoscope, and the second time it was helmed by Andrew Mast, Kimberly-Clark Professor of Music, associate dean of the Conservatory and director of bands.
Mast focused on capturing sounds from across the globe. Photo credits: Paul Wilke above , Liz Boutelle right. Director of Athletics Christyn Abaray will ask you about your dog; it just depends on the moment. I have 13 head coaches. I have 13 different ways to deliver a message. Abaray is a big believer in motivation—not the locker room speech at the center of every sports movie climax, but self-motivation.

As athletics director, Abaray has many goals for Viking Athletics including increasing recruitment and retention of student athletes and creating a path for individual programs to build and thrive. She is also excited to help Lawrence expand on its formal leadership training [see page 16] for students so they can articulate the skills they are developing. The junior from South Milwaukee, Wis.

Janusiak posted the fastest time in conference history at A native of South Milwaukee, Wis. He finished with a time of Janusiak also won three other individual titles and was named Midwest Conference Performer of the Week three times.
The Lawrence men finished fourth at the league championships, and the women were sixth. Lawrence, which posted victories over Beloit College and Finlandia University, had five players named to the All-Midwest Conference team. He led the team with 88 tackles, including 7. Cornerback Terrell Myers Jr. He paced the team with three interceptions and nine pass breakups. Allen led the team with rushing yards and four touchdowns and averaged a healthy 4. Koeneman led the defensive linemen with 41 tackles, 6. It was a season of near-misses for Lawrence as the Vikings dropped five one-goal games.
Berkley was chosen for the AllMidwest Conference team for the second time as she earned second-team honors. The Vikings finished with a record and placed 10th in the Midwest Conference with a record. The Vikings put together a record and went in league play. One of those wins was an victory over rival Ripon. Holsen and Nottberg won , and the Vikings posted a victory over the Lady Blues. Lawrence beat the Sabres College as the Vikings continue to dominate the Red Hawks. Lawrence has now beaten Ripon 14 straight times in a run that dates all the way to the season.
The cardiac kids on the volleyball squad played nine marathon five-set matches, the most in school history, and posted a mark in those matches.

My overall impression from the visit was of something out of a Thomas Mann novel: faded grandeur and an air of antique stillness, overseen by a wizened and mildly vexed aristo. She also finds there a sacred staff which apparently is used by local witches in their ceremonies. I believe that the breadth of understanding and the depth of curiosity about the world inculcated by a Lawrence education prepares our students to engage with that complexity wherever their lives take them when they leave Lawrence.
