The Linda Parker Hudson Engineering Leader in Residence Program brings leaders in industry and academics to the University of Florida campus. Established by Linda Parker Hudson in 2015, the program celebrates leadership and diversity.
I am largely who I am today because of my education and experience at the University of Florida College of Engineering. Building on my ongoing support for the UF Engineering Leadership Institute and Dean Abernathy’s transformational vision, this gift will help address our world’s critical need for nurturing and mentoring effective and ethical leaders. I believe our future depends on their development, and I am passionate about accomplished leaders sharing their knowledge and experiences with younger generations.
