Birmingham-Southern president addresses human dignity at student leadership conference

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern President Dr. David Pollick was a guest speaker at the Inaugural Ethical Student Leadership Conference which was held recently at Wiley College in Marshall, Texas. His topic, “Ethics and Human Dignity,” was presented during the Plenary Session of the conference.

The conference was developed by Wiley College because “recent events that have been chronicled in the media have underscored a moral decline in the behavior and decision-making of individuals in leadership roles and that of the common citizenry,” says Joseph L. Morale, vice president for student affairs and enrollment services at the college.

The invitation to speak at the conference was extended to Pollick because of his vision for Birmingham-Southern to “involve the college community in the advancement of human dignity in general and worldwide human dignity” and his “plans to appoint an individual to assume responsibility on campus,” says Morale.

Wiley College, located in Marshall, Texas, is a baccalaureate degree-granting institution also affiliated with the United Methodist Church.
