Monday, January 9
Admiral Craig Quigley, "Communicating with the World in Real Time: Crisis Leadership on 9-11 and the Time Ahead"
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 Terror.

Department of Performing Arts presents
Heidi Chronicles by Wendy Wasserstein

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.

Reservations highly recommended: $12.00 or Elon ID. Reservations will be taken beginning January 11, 2006, by calling (336) 278-5650. *
