“Leadership is not taught.
It is instead modeled.
Real leadership is not about
who gets the credit.
It is instead about
who empowers others to lead.”

– Dr. Emily Taylor

In tribute to Dr. Taylor,
former KU dean of Women (1956-1975),
who inspired women to challenge
the status quo and reach their potential.
(April 13, 1915 – May 1, 2004)
