The Office of Urban Leadership invites you to lunch with the BOLD Project leaders.These leaders (and their projects) were selected through a competitive process in December 2012; final selections were made by the BOLD Council. Each project received a maximum budget of $1,000 toward an initiative that demonstrates urban leadership while further advancing the urban leadership experience of students.
Although you can read brief descriptions of each project below, we are inviting you to learn more about what students, faculty and staff are doing both on and off campus. Lunch will be served. Join us:
Friday, April 26, 2013

Please RSVP by April 22nd so that we have an accurate count for the lunch service. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you!
