Background:

In 2008, the Suzanne & Richard Pieper Family Foundation established an Endowed Chair for Servant Leadership at the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Engineering in 2008. The chair's mission is to help prepare future leaders in their chosen fields to live lives of service to others by teaching and exemplifying character and moral values. Their examples and actions will lift up society, enrich organizations and communities, and have a positive effect on the least privileged. The selected candidate for this advertised position will report to the Pieper Family Chair for Servant Leadership in the College of Engineering.

The Pieper Family Chair for Servant Leadership must measure performance and report annually to the Foundation. On the basis of the Chair's results or progress, the foundation makes awards to increase the endowment. The Chair has developed a small team to advance the efforts of Servant Leadership in the College of Engineering. The individual appointed to this advertised position is expected to become a part of this team.

These efforts are intended to include educational opportunities (classroom and/or online) for engineering students. The educational opportunities need not focus solely on servant leadership, but need to include the leadership model as an alternative for students to consider. In addition to the educational opportunities, the chair distributes student awards that support extracurricular projects grounded in Servant Leadership philosophy, facilitates Servant Leadership focused events and introduces Servant Leadership concepts into academic environments. For further information please refer to the Pieper Family Servant Leadership website at http://pieper.engr.wisc.edu/.
