Thaddeus currently serves as Residential College Director at NYU Abu Dhabi, where he directs all aspects of the programs and services for the A2 Residential College, housing the first year student population. His talk on Creating Vision: Patience, Wisdom, and a Preference for the People will explore the concept of vision, the power it holds, and what it requires of the visionary. Vision will be explored through the Thaddeus’ lens and lived experience. With world peace as the conduit, Thaddeus will challenge the audience to dream and to walk through the process that can make those dreams come true. Creating Vision will share how vision creates humility by requiring patience; vision shapes the future by requiring wisdom; and most importantly how vision brings people together by requiring a preference for the people.
