"In many years of working with leaders at a variety of levels, I have come to the conclusion that the talents we think of as peculiar to the leader exist in all of us.  It’s what we do with those talents and how we share our love that determines our success.  Leadership is an affair of the heart, not the head.  This session will explore how to lead with passion, how to stay in love with the students we serve, and how to ignite in each other the fire needed to accomplish the mission of higher education."

Dr. Chela Mendoza Patterson holds a B.A. in Sociology from the University of California, Irvine, an M.A. in College Student Personnel Administration from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Southern California.  While at Chico State, Chela has served as the Director of the Associated Students Information Center, the Bell Memorial Union Programming Coordinator, an EOP Adviser, the Associate Director for Leadership Programs in the Student Activities Office, and the Associated Students Activity Fee Director.  Since 2005, she has served as the Director of the Educational Opportunity Program, which provides support services for first generation, low income college students. After 35 years in the profession, Chela still believes she has the best job in the world!

This workshop is brought you by the Cross-Cultural Leadership Center as part of Passing on the Legacy: The Higher Education Speaker Series.  These workshops are designed to give entry-level to mid-level professionals an opportunity to gain greater incite into the Leadership at the Executive Level.
