Freeman Commons - Room 205
Humphrey School of Public Affairs
Steve Lepinski has served as CEO of Washburn Center since 1987 and has been a leader in shaping children’s mental health policy in Minnesota. Come discuss and reflect with Steve how working across boundaries has created and sustained the capacity to best serve our communities’ children. Most recently Steve successfully brought together public and private leaders to fund and open the new facility for the Washburn Center for Children. Over the years he has served on boards and commissions for many collaborative efforts including the Minnesota Association of Community Mental Health Programs, Minnesota Mental Health Action Group (MHAG), and Minnesota Children’s Mental Health Partnership.

Would you like to conduct first-hand oral histories with the current and former Minnesota governors as well as other important political figures?
The Center for Integrative Leadership is accepting applications for two or three students in both the summer and the fall to work with the Minnesota Historical Society’s Senior Curator and current CIL Executive Leadership Fellow Pat Coleman. Students will work with Coleman for 15-25 hours over the course of the summer and fall to research and conduct a first-person, substantive oral history of Minnesota governors. This oral history will be a University resource and will be offered to the Minnesota Historical Society for their permanent public affairs holdings. More Info.
