Shaving the Yak

  • Sometimes, our leaders and our groups get stuck on things that simply aren’t important. A particular campus tradition, campus expectation, or habit might feel critical, but it’s actually holding us back from reaching our potential.

    “Shaving the Yak” is about readjusting our focus, rediscovering our purpose, and taking those crucial first steps toward something new and meaningful. Steve Whitby, an IUP alumnus, will discuss topics such as communicating a vision, thinking at a higher level, being a servant leader, and facing critical change.

    Whitby is a storyteller, conveying critical lessons about student leadership and human potential through stories of normal people facing extraordinary opportunities. He’s also a part of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity and a 1994 IUP alumnus.

    Cosponsored by the Center for Multicultural Student Leadership and Engagement and Golden Key.
