Tim Mousseau, a speaker for Campuspeak, plans to share some powerful personal experiences with students at William Woods University to motivate them and spark change in the way they think about certain topics.

“I teach students how to live curiously, risk intelligently, and pursue their passions,” Mousseau said. “My speaking instills principles of curiosity, creativity, and risk.”

Mousseau will speak at two events on campus Tuesday, Nov. 17, regarding leadership and the conversation of sexual assault. The programs, which are free and open to the public, will be held at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the McNutt Campus Center.

During the first program, “Few Leaders, More Innovators: Cultivating a Culture of Innovation” Mousseau will address the issues facing college communities. He will break through the conventional norms of leadership to help students understand what it means to be innovative and how to succeed in taking organizational risks.

In the evening, during “Retaking Our Story: Reframing the Sexual Assault Conversation,” Mousseau will discuss how to recognize the physical, emotional and psychological impacts of sexual assault. He intends to leave the audience ready to create a culture of compassion while realistically facing an issue prevalent on many campuses.

Mousseau’s appearances are sponsored by Phi Gamma Delta (Fiji) fraternity, whose treasurer, Stephen Merriott, had seen some of his presentations.

“I chose to bring him to campus because I saw a unique quality that caught my eye,” said Merriott. “Tim was able to grab my attention and maintain my focus throughout the entire presentation.”

Phi Gamma Delta gained support from multiple groups to bring Mousseau to campus, including the Multi-Cultural Affairs Office, Multi-Cultural Affairs Club, Panhellenic, Athletics, IFC, Q&A Club, and Academics.
