FSU: Students Selected to Attend National Leadership Conference

Written by FSU on 10 April 2009.

The Office of Career Services at Fayetteville State University announces the selection of three Broncos who will be attending the National Urban League’s Leadership B.E.E.P. (Black Executive Exchange Program) leadership conference. Travis Harris, a junior Accounting major (Zebulon), Francine Dunbar, a junior Mass Communications major (Durham), and M. Jarrell Goode, a Business Administration major (Fayetteville) were selected to attend the annual conference which will be held in Atlanta, Ga.; June 1 - 6, 2009.  Melvin Jarrell Goode, the student that was selected by the VP of the Black Executive Exchange Program and Volunteer Programs for the National Urban League when he visited campus last week.

“The Office of Career Services is proud to have these exceptional students representing the University at Leadership B.E.E.P,” said Helene A. Cameron, Director of Career Services. “Both Travis and Francine were selected because they wrote dynamic essays on what attending the conference would mean to them personally and professionally. Jarrell’s selection was made by Mr. Mark Monteverdi, vice president of the Black Executive Exchange Program and Volunteer Programs with the National Urban League, who was impressed with Jarrell Goode upon meeting him at Fayetteville State University.

Leadership B.E.E.P. helps students increase their understanding of effective leadership strategies and practices, and provides opportunities for them to network with leading African-American executives.

The four-day, activity-enriched conference allows students to evaluate their leadership and personality styles through the use of self-assessment tools, intense workshops, and interaction with African-American executives and their student peers.

Leadership B.E.E.P. will also help students to:

  • Begin to take responsibility for their own leadership development
  • Increase self-awareness as well as understand how others may perceive them
  • Gain information, skills and self-confidence to become successful leaders
  • Establish formal mentor relationships with African-American executives
  • Develop action plans to implement personal change
  • Learn to identify and avoid leadership pitfalls
  • Create specific action plans for success
  • Master the art of effective networking
  • Develop business acumen, political and organizational savvy,

The Black Executive Exchange Program is a voluntary partnership between the National Urban League, corporate America, government, non-profits, and other institutions to loan African-American executives to participating colleges as “visiting professors.” Visiting professors lecture in courses that correspond to their industries and participate in other B.E.E.P.-related activities such as networking sessions, workshops, and mock job interviews. Their mission is to share learning experiences across generations, cultivate new leaders, and inspire achievements “beyond the possible” through committed involvement and operational excellence.
