Pizza with the Professionals

Leadership Safari is a new student transition conference designed to assist new students in developing valuable leadership skills and perspectives. At Pizza with the Professionals, we pair faculty, staff and administrators with a Leadership Safari team for dinner and group discussion. Students have the opportunity to get to know more about CMU from a different perspective, ask questions and spark some dialogue. It also gives faculty and staff members an opportunity to speak with incoming students, see the Leadership Safari program from the inside and even share some leadership tips with your group!

Your department or job description doesn't matter. If you can spare an hour of your time and wouldn't mind some free pizza and salad, we'd love to have you! Research demonstrates the importance of building a campus environment where students can connect with faculty and staff. You are asked to be authentic and to represent the university with pride. You may not have all the answers. Your insights, advice and presence show students you care about their success.
