Pieper Servant Leadership committee members receive specialized training

Members of Ripon College’s Pieper Servant Leadership Steering Committee trained at Boise State University in Idaho earlier this month on “Becoming a Servant Leader.”

Training addresses how to effect positive changes as a leader by helping others become the best they can be at what they do. “Many associate the idea of leadership with words like power, authority and charisma,” says Maria Mendoza-Bautista, director of multicultural affairs. “But, historically, those people who have actually made lasting positive change know that true leadership is much more about developing individuals and building a community around a shared purpose. This course introduced us to the fundamentals of servant leadership and helped us identify and make changes in our leadership styles to improve the work that we do to serve others.”

Additional attendees included:

  • Katie Astrauskas, associate professor of exercise science, athletic administrator and head coach of volleyball
  • Jake Marshall, associate head football coach/offensive coordinator/recruiting coordinator (quarterbacks)
  • Paula Stettbacher, director of human resources
  • Jordan Bukouricz ’23 of New Franken, Wisconsin, Student Athletes Advisory Council (SAAC)
  • Olivia Killian ’22 of Minocqua, Wisconsin, SAAC
  • Paul Thompson, assistant professor of music
  • Erin Munro Krull, assistant professor of mathematics
  • Hervé Somé, associate professor of educational studies
