Center for Leadership Development Staff
Dr. Patricia Dyk
As the Director of the Center for Leadership Development, oversees leadership development opportunities including the undergraduate Turner Leadership Academy and Explorations in Leadership programs. We are launching research this fall to evaluate the effectiveness of Equine Guided Leadership Education. In addition to leadership topics focusing on emotional intelligence and youth leadership development, my research focuses on health and economic well-being of low-income rural mothers, brain drain in rural Kentucky, and Turning the Tide on Poverty – evaluating the effectiveness of community–based engagement across the rural South.
