The Bernhard M. Christensen Symposium will feature the Rev. Dr. Robert M. Franklin, Jr. In his position as the inaugural James T. and Berta R. Laney Chair in Moral Leadership at Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, Rev. Dr. Franklin challenges students to explore the concept of moral leadership in the 21st century in different cultures and contexts in the United States and around the world.

Dr. Franklin’s most recent book, Moral Leadership: Integrity, Courage, Imagination (2020), will be the focus of his October 1 keynote. Dr. Franklin proposes a model for moral leadership anchored in intellectual and ethical integrity, a vision of and commitment to the public good, and personal investment in transformative community. He shares ways in which we can discover and foster those qualities in ourselves.
