About the Distinguished Speaker Series

Now in its sixth successful year, our Distinguished Speaker Series features high-profile individuals from literature, public affairs and popular culture, with each presentation attracting the campus community and the wider public, generating media coverage, and providing memorable experiences for our students. The college received a generous gift from a private donor to underwrite part of this series on campus.

The goal of the Distinguished Speaker Series is to connect alumni, community members, friends, faculty, staff, students and their families with well-known authors, policy makers and leaders, scientists, media experts, business people, and other luminaries, on our campus.
