Peter Senge Speaks Out

The concepts of organizational learning and the “Fifth Discipline” by Peter Senge was originally brought to many of our student’s attention when Dr. Edward Sabin first started integrating Senge’s popular psychology into the classroom. On earth day, Peter Senge himself visited the Saint Louis University campus to discuss the integration of organizational learning and environmental sustainability. Senge as well as other guest speakers presented numerous examples of the collaboration between student innovation, educators and businesses to produce tangible environmental solutions across the world. Educators, CEOs and students from the St. Louis area were in attendance to discuss new perspective and build new collaborations. This half day conference was just one example of science in action right here on our SLU campus.
