VALPARAISO | Valparaiso University's Institute for Leadership and Service will launch its new speaker series this week with Andrew Nunemaker, an entrepreneur and philanthropist who will speak about "Leadership and Service in Action."
Nunemaker is CEO of Dynamis Software Corp., a firm specializing in software solutions for health insurance brokers nationwide.
"We are thrilled to welcome Andy back to campus for the inaugural event of the institute's new speaker series," said Elizabeth Lynn, director of the Institute for Leadership and Service. "Andrew's sense of calling as a philanthropist and his insight into the surprising ways in which his college years prepared the way make him an ideal candidate to speak on leadership and service."
In 2012, Lynn became the first director of the Institute for Leadership and Service, which works in conjunction with Campus Ministries to expand and enhance opportunities for experiential learning, service and vocational reflection throughout Valparaiso University's curriculum and in the greater Valparaiso community.
The institute's new series invites guests to speak on calling and purpose in society, answering what it means to lead, give and serve. Nunemaker's lecture is presented in partnership with the Christ College Symposium, a series sponsored by Valparaiso University’s honors college that features distinguished guests from all fields of scholarship, religion, the arts, public affairs and science.
The inaugural event for the series is at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the Christopher Center Community Room on Valparaiso University’s campus. It is free and open to the public.
