Leadership will be the subject of the 2009 Paul D. Scholz Symposium on Technology and its Role in Society to be held from 4:30 to 5:20 p.m. Thursday, April 16, in Shambaugh Auditorium, Main Library.

Robert M. Chiusano, retired executive vice president and chief operating officer of Rockwell Collins, Inc., member of the University of Iowa Engineering Advisory Board, and member of the Winnebago Industries Board of Directors, will speak on "Leadership in Engineering."

A forum for exploring aspects of technology that will affect society today and in the future, the symposium was renamed in 1993 in honor of Scholz, who received numerous teaching awards and served as advisor to Tau Beta Pi for 20 years and as associate dean of the UI College of Engineering from 1979 until his death in 1992.

The symposium, free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by the UI College of Engineering chapter of Tau Beta Pi, Tau Beta Pi alumni, and the UI College of Engineering.
