Immaculata University Kicks Off its Lecture Series with Jack Brennan, Former CEO of The Vanguard Group

Immaculata University is pleased to announce that John (Jack) J. Brennan, chairman emeritus and senior advisor of The Vanguard Group, will be the first speaker in the newly created Immaculata University Lecture Series. Brennan will speak on Tuesday, October 19, at 2 p.m., in the Great Hall on the campus of Immaculata. The event is free and open to the public.
According to Brennan, in today´s economic landscape, the prospect of leaving the "college world" and entering the "work world" can seem downright scary. Brennan´s timely topic, "Today´s Challenges, Tomorrow´s Leaders," will discuss the keys to being a leader in any environment and the importance of sticking to your values and principles.
With its commitment to lifelong learning and the development of the whole person, Immaculata University is coordinating a lecture series showcasing prominent men and women who will introduce a wide range of topics to its students and the community.
