Benedictine University's 'Journeys in Leadership' series to feature music producer, performer Terence F. Clark Dec. 1
Terence F. Clark, music producer and current touring drummer for Keith Urban and Boz Skaggs, will be the next featured guest in Benedictine University's "Journeys in Leadership" speaker series on Wednesday, Dec. 1.
The virtual program will be 7 to 9 p.m. The Zoom program is open to the public.
Clark will discuss his upbringing, what inspires him musically and creatively, and the significance of music in his life, both as a form of personal expression and as a vehicle for connecting with people from around the world.
"The 'Journeys in Leadership' series continues to push the boundaries in its definition of leadership and the ways we understand how individuals function as leaders in many different fields. Clark is one of the most sought after and respected artists in the Memphis and Nashville music scenes, and his dynamism as a producer, editor, designer and contemporary voice on matters of social justice make him a perfect fit for this series," said Phil Hardy, Journeys in Leadership director and Associate Professor of Political Science at Benedictine University.
Clark is a Memphis-born and bred drummer, producer, session drummer and advocate for social activism. Known for his impeccable yet soulful performance and discipline of craft, Clark has traveled the world building relationships with and through music.
As he finds inspiration in his travels and engaging other cultures, he always lends inspiration with his unique brand of performance, solid groove, and musical excellence.

Established in 2020 by the College of Liberal Arts "Forward" task force, Journeys in Leadership is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical speaker series generously supported by the Becker Endowment fund. The aim of the series is to highlight the successes (and challenges) of an eclectic mix of local, state, national and international leaders from across a range of professional and academic experiences.
Stressing the importance of a liberal arts education, the common thread of the speakers is their commitment to community discourse and living active, healthy lives. Whether considering the life skills of a renowned poet, the musical and business acumen of a symphony CEO, or the dedication to international service of an aid worker, each of these carefully selected speakers has been invited to Benedictine University to share their life's journey, with the primary goal of teaching and inspiring our students.
Journeys in Leadership events are held via Zoom. All events are free and open to the public, and feature not only a keynote speaker but also a group of student, alum, faculty and community panelists that participate in each event. Learn more at www.ben.edu/journeysinleadership/.
