In 2004, MSOE established the Pieper Family Endowed Chair for Servant-Leadership, thanks to a major gift from the Suzanne and Richard Pieper Family Foundation. Professor DeAnna Leitzke, PE currently holds the Pieper Family Endowed Chair for Servant-Leadership. She is responsible for helping integrate this leadership philosophy throughout the social fabric and culture of the university.

The Pieper Family Foundation endowment helps fund projects that enable our students to integrate what they learn in the classroom while practicing the Principles of Servant-Leadership to serve the Milwaukee community and beyond. Servant-leaders have a fundamental commitment to serving others with integrity and humility while encouraging excellence and growth in those whom they lead.

If you are part of the MSOE community, the office of Servant-Leadership is here to serve you! We are not an organization. We are a department which is here to support the MSOE community. As Chair, it is my job to educate the MSOE community about servant-leadership and help provide opportunities for students to lead projects that allow them to practice the tenets of servant-leadership as they serve the community here at MSOE, in the Greater Milwaukee Area and around the world. If you are a student, faculty member or staff member and would like to learn more about servant-leadership I am happy to meet with you anytime to chat about how you can get involved ( If you would like to stay up-to-date on the work that we are doing, please follow us on FaceBook (MSOE Servant Leadership | Facebook). If you see a meeting or event posted on these pages that interests you, stop by and get involved. Hope to see you soon!
