The Heath Leadership Seminar Series is designed to give the Stevens community an opportunity to listen to — and learn from — the experiences of corporate leaders in business and industry. This series is supported by a donation from A. Roy Heath, a 1938 graduate of Stevens, who believed that one needs much more than technical expertise to be an effective leader.
