History of the Susan Herman Distinguished Speaker Series
Dr. Susan Herman
The Susan Herman Distinguished Speaker Series was established in the
Northern Leadership Center after Professor Herman passed away in 2009. At
UAF and in the Fairbanks community, Susan touched many lives. She was the
founder of the Northern Leadership Center and designer of the UAF Summer
Leadership Institute that brings together high school students from across the
state to foster their leadership potential. She designed Leadership Fairbanks
for the Chamber of Commerce and was the faculty mentor for the Associated
Students of Business.
Dr. Herman was a dynamic, energetic, and inspiring professor, mentor, and peer.
All who knew her were influenced by her willingness to serve, her ability to draw
people and ideas together, her tenacious faithfulness to a cause, and the never-
ending amount of encouragement and support she had to offer.
