KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University will hold its 2011 Leadership Colloquium from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, in Room 1040 of the Fetzer Center.

The annual event gives students as well as faculty and staff members at all levels an opportunity to engage in thoughtful conversation about the importance of visionary leadership on campus, in the larger community and in Michigan as a whole.
