Fifth Annual Regent University Global Roundtable
Friday, February 22
10:30am - 12:30pm
COM Bldg - Main Theater
Thank you to everyone who made the 5th Annual Global Roundtable a success. Each annual roundtable is a vital part of Regent's RU Global Campaign - an initiative of our Quality Enhancement Program. This year we discussed how to lead in Jesus' name personally, practically and politically given the challenge of global citizenship and historical models of Christian leadership.
