Featured Perch Projects
Mortar Board Leadership Conference put on by the Quo Vadis chapter at University of North Dakota and the Barbara Cook chapter at Purdue University.
Quo Vadis chapter provided 100 students the opportunity to develop their leadership skills while networking with community leaders and peers. Along with local leaders in the community, the chapter also had a motivational speaker, Mortar Board’s own David Coleman. Each speaker provided a different twist on what being a leader means. This helped cater to the many interests and areas of study for those in attendance. Students from surrounding universities were invited to attend for a small fee.
At Purdue, 150 undergraduates came to the Student Union and Stewart Center on a Saturday early in spring semester. The theme was Small Steps to Giant Leaps. The chapter invited successful young professionals from diverse fields to speak in break-out sessions. Lunch featured Keynoter and President Emeritus Martin C. Jischke (a Mortar Board), who spoke on the importance of making the most of the time as students. The chapter wanted to offer a service to the student body, give alumni an opportunity to reconnect with campus and promote Mortar Board. This program has been held for nearly 30 years.
