ACADEMIC VICE PRESIDENT OF LA ROCHE SELECTED FOR LEADERSHIP PITTSBURGH INC.


8/14/2006

Pittsburgh, August 15—Academic Vice President Howard Ishiyama, Ph.D., recently was chosen to participate in Leadership Pittsburgh Inc. His selection was based on his leadership role at the College and his involvement in civic and community activities. Ishiyama’s membership will occur as part of Leadership Pittsburgh XXIII, which begins Sept. 15.

“This is an exciting development for me and for the College,” Ishiyama said. “Through Leadership Pittsburgh, I will be able to network and collaborate with other business and non-profit leaders in the Pittsburgh community – working together toward the common goal of bettering the area where we live and work.”

Leadership Pittsburgh Inc. is an independent non-profit organization that strives to bring together leaders from southwestern Pennsylvania to examine critical issues and to provide skill development and community service opportunities for these leaders. Selected participants come from diverse backgrounds but unite to help shape the Pittsburgh region and develop positive change for the area. More than 1,300 civic leaders have completed the program. In fact, Ishiyama joins three other La Roche employees as Leadership Pittsburgh participants: Ken Service, vice president of Institutional Relations; Lance Shaeffer, assistant dean for Academic Affairs for Academic Enrichment; and Sister Carolyn Winschel, CDP, Ph.D., former special assistant to the president for mission and planning.
