Leadership Institute (July 12, 2009)
USF is teaming up with a number of groups to set up "The Innisbrook Leadership Institute." This week's University Beat takes you to the kick-off event for the Institute, which organizers hope will aid leaders of companies and organizations navigate through these difficult times.
Practical Politics (July 5, 2009)
Students in a USF St. Petersburg Political Science course are seeing what a real election campaign is like as interns for mayoral and city council candidates. Join them as this week's University Beat goes from the classroom to the campaign trail for some "practical politics."
