(STILLWATER, Okla., September 17, 2014) – Oklahoma State University’s Center for Ethical Leadership will host Frank Morsani, former chairman of the board of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, at a Student Leaders Luncheon set for Tuesday, Sept. 23, in Taylor’s Dining Room on campus.  

Morsani, who has owned more than 40 companies, will speak about his experiences in leadership while at OSU and afterwards, as chairman of the board of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. He received his Bachelor of Science in Trade and Industrial Engineering from OSU and went on to work for Ford Motor Company. Recognized for his philanthropy at OSU, Morsani also received an honorary doctorate from the university in 2010.  

“Frank Morsani is the epitome of the classic cowboy way,” said Stephen Haseley, Center for Ethical Leadership manager. “He has an interesting career history to share that illustrates integrity, honor and the courage to hope, even when he was the only one with hope.”  

The luncheon is part of the first Leadership-in-Residence Program of the year. The program brings alumni and other leaders associated with OSU to campus to teach and interact with students, faculty and staff by discussing their real life challenges and experiences as an ethical leader.
