Scholars in Ethical Leadership: Faculty and Staff

Faculty Involvement

The Mann Center is grateful to the generous Samford faculty and staff, listed below, who helped develop the initial Scholars in Ethical Leadership proposal. As the program is further developed, and ultimately launched, ongoing faculty and staff involvement from across disciplines will be essential. If you would like to participate in any way, please contact Azalea Hulbert at 205.726.4634.
