The theme for our leadership programs in this spring semester is “Servant Leadership in the Augustinian Tradition.” Although St. Augustine did not coin the phrase, servant leadership is an important component of leadership, often referred being a servant first as “the first thing” leaders need to recognize in themselves. Dr.Darryl J. Ford will highlight his experiences being a (servant) leader within the education system for over 25 years. He has a seasoned perspective of leadership and is a proponent for being a servant first and exhibits the idea that leadership begins with being a servant to those that you lead.

Dr. Ford is a graduate of University of Chicago with a Doctorate in Education Administration, Institutional, & Policy Studies. A 1987 graduate of Villanova University with both a Bachelor of Arts in Social Studies Education and Bachelors of Arts in Honors, he currently serves as one of Villanova University’s Board of Trustees members and is very eager to return to campus and contribute to the development of our students.

We look forward to welcoming Dr. Ford back to Villanova on Monday, February 8th at 5:15pm in the Villanova Room, Connelly Center. Student, faculty, and staff tickets are free, however registration is required at
