Admiral Craig Quigley, "Communicating with the
World in Real Time: Crisis Leadership on 9-11 and the Time
Whitley Auditorium, 3:30 p.m.
Crisis is a reality for 21st century
leaders. Natural disasters, terrorist attacks, disease
outbreaks, financial catastrophes, and corporate moral
fallouts have all warranted a leader’s response to
crisis. Craig Quigley, retired U.S. Navy Rear Admiral and
current Vice President of Communications for Lockheed Martin,
developed a strategic communications plan for the Global War
against Terrorism following the September 11th terrorist
attacks in 2001. He will give a compelling account of our
government’s response to 9-11 and the days that
followed, focusing on the attributes of successful leadership
in a time of crisis. He will also address the leadership
style of several key individuals during the initial combat
operations in the Afghanistan portion of the Global War on

Department of Performing Arts presents
Heidi Chronicles by Wendy
Directed by Richard Gang
Black Box Theatre, 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday;
2:00 p.m. Saturday & Sunday
Heidi Holland, with an Ivy League
education and a Fulbright in England under her belt, is a
lecturer in art history, an expert on female artists
virtually unknown in their lifetimes, though their work is as
good as that of the male painters who dominated their ages.
Using the art history "hook" into the question of
women and their role-as they see their roles, as men see
women's roles, and as women search for happiness within
these roles-Wendy Wasserstein has written a thoughtful and
very funny drama about the Baby Boom generation and the price
its women have paid as they have searched for fulfillment.
Wasserstein takes us from Heidi's high school and college
days, as she grows in her thinking and view of her role in
life, to her experiences with women's lib focus groups,
the Eugene McCarthy campaign, the rise of AIDS, the gay
movement, and ultimately Heidi's realization of what is
important to her, not just professionally and
philosophically, but personally and emotionally. The play
offers insights into significant social issues, gracefully
presented so that they do not alienate the audience.
