"Learning to Lead in a Technical World"
Keynote: Tori Murden McClure is the president of Spalding University, in Louisville, Kentucky. Spalding continues a legacy of education and service established by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in 1814. Today, Spalding serves students at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral level.
A passionate world adventurer and humanitarian, Ms. McClure is best known as the first woman and first American to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She was also the first woman and first American to travel overland to the geographic South Pole, skiing 750 miles from the ice shelf to the pole. Ms. McClure has climbed on several continents and is a fully certified emergency medical technician in both urban and wilderness areas and is a graduate of the National Outdoor Leadership School having served as the chair of the board of directors.
An outspoken critic of the disparity in higher education today and always promoting the transformational power of education, Tori holds a Bachelor of Arts from Smith College, a Master of Divinity from Harvard University, and her juris doctorate from the University of Louisville’s Louis D. Brandeis School of Law. In 2005, she earned her master of fine arts in writing from Spalding University. Her non-fiction book A Pearl in the Storm was published by Harper-Collins in 2009.
Tori Murden McClure encourages individuals, particularly students at Spalding, to seek greatness through learning and to use their talents and skills to contribute to their own communities.
