Benedictine University’s “Journeys in Leadership” series to feature music producer and performer Terence F. Clark on December 1


Terence F. Clark, music producer and touring drummer for Keith Urban and Boz Skaggs, will be the next featured guest of Benedictine University’s “Journeys in Leadership” lecture series on Wednesday December 1st.

The virtual program will be from 7 p.m. 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 importance of music in his life, both as a form of personal expression and as a vehicle for connecting with people around the world.

“The ‘Journeys in Leadership’ series continues to push the boundaries of its definition of leadership and how we understand how individuals function as leaders in many different fields. Clark is one of the most sought-after artists and music’s most respected Memphis and Nashville stages, and his drive as a producer, editor, designer and contemporary voice on social justice issues make him a perfect choice for this series, ”said Phil Hardy, director of Journeys in Leadership and Associate Professor of Political Science at the Benedictine University.

Clark is a drummer, producer, session drummer and advocate for social activism born and raised in Memphis. Known for his flawless yet moving performances and his craft discipline, Clark has traveled the world forging relationships with and through music.

As he finds inspiration in his travels and engaging in other cultures, he always lends his inspiration with his unique mark of performance, solid groove and musical excellence.

Created in 2020 by the College of Liberal Arts’ Forward Task Force, Journeys in Leadership is a non-partisan, non-political lecture 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 a range of professional and academic backgrounds.

Emphasizing the importance of liberal arts education, the common thread of the speakers is their commitment to community discourse and active, healthy living. Whether it is the life skills of a renowned poet, the musical and business acumen of a CEO of a symphony, or the dedication to international service of a humanitarian worker, each of these carefully selected speakers has been invited to the Benedictine University to share the journey of their life, with the main objective of teaching and inspiring our students.

Journeys in Leadership events are organized through Zoom. All events are free and open to the public, and feature not only a keynote speaker, but also a group of students, alumni, faculty, and community panelists who attend each event. Learn more at www.ben.edu/journeysinleadership/.
