Suzanne Welch has been named the new Director of the Tucker Leadership Lab at William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo.

Welch received a B.A. in psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia and an M.A. in counseling and guidance from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She has served as a leadership and team development facilitator at William Jewell’s Tucker Leadership Lab, an experiential leadership development facility, and as a team development facilitator at St. Luke’s Health System’s Adventure Woods.

“Suzanne brings energy and passion to her new role,” said Matt Brillhart, Director of Community Leadership Programming at William Jewell’s Fred and Shirley Pryor Center for Leadership Development. “Her educational background, along with her knowledge in experiential learning, provide a strong background for this position.”

Welch replaces Todd Long, who is transitioning into a new role as Director of Leadership Training and Development at William Jewell’s Pryor Center.

The Fred and Shirley Pryor Center for Leadership Development, located on the William Jewell campus in Liberty, includes classrooms, offices, a technology-enabled strategic planning center and staging areas for experiential activities. Alumni Fred and Shirley Pryor made the lead gift to the Center for Leadership Development, which opened in the spring of 2006.

William Jewell’s unique Pryor Leadership Studies Program is a competency-based certificate program in leadership development offered as part of the college’s curricular programs. The college also offers an American Humanics Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership, which is designed to prepare and certify future nonprofit professionals to work with youth and families. A new major in nonprofit leadership is being introduced in the fall of 2007.

The Pryor Center for Leadership Development incorporates two additional services available to community members. The Jewell Round Table provides a web-based tool that creates measurable results for those engaged in idea generation, decision-making, strategic planning, group surveys and consensus-building. IMPACT Performance offers interactive classroom training and development programs as well as professional consulting services. Training programs focus on developing improved leadership skills and enhancing team effectiveness while providing professional development for participants.
