Rudy Giuliani to speak at University of the Cumberlands

University of the Cumberlands (UC) and the Forcht Group of Kentucky Center for Excellence in Leadership present “Principled Leadership in a Time of Crisis” with former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. The event will be held in UC’s O. Wayne Rollins Center on Tuesday, April 3 at 7 p.m.

Giuliani served as mayor of New York City from 1994 to 2001, during which time he worked to reduce crime and make improvements to the city’s welfare system. In 2001, Giuliani was named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” for his steady leadership in the aftermath of 9/11.

In 2002, Giuliani founded Giuliani Partners, a professional services firm specializing in emergency preparedness, public safety, and leadership during crises and financial management. He is also a partner at the law firm Bracewell & Giuliani LLP.

UC’s annual lecture series is made possible by an endowment from local business owners Dr. Terry and Mrs. Marion Forcht, who founded the Forcht Group of Kentucky Center for Excellence in Leadership in 2006. The purpose of the Center is to provide programs and activities that enhance the development of leadership, character and good citizenship. Past speakers in the series have included Roy Moore, Zell Miller, Stephen Covey, Ben Stein, Karl Rove and Mike Huckabee.
