Friars Leaders Program

Thanks to the ongoing generosity of Simmons trustee emerita Eileen Friars ‘72, the Friars Leaders Program will bring speakers to campus throughout the fall and spring semesters, enhancing and deepening student learning. Linked to the Boston, Simmons, and Leadership Courses in a student’s first year of the Simmons PLAN, speakers will reflect Simmons’ focus on the many different types and styles of leadership. This spring we're excited to welcome Callie Crossley, Joyce Kulhawik and Paul Farmer
