About the SUNY New Paltz 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.
Focusing on the role of intellectual life in the Hudson Valley, New Paltz provides one of the nation's most open, diverse, and artistic environments in order to prepare students to excel in rapidly changing times that demand creativity and worldliness.
The goal of the Distinguished Speaker Series is to connect community members, alumni, 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.
Thank you to our Spring 2014 Distinguished Speaker Series Major Sponsors To Date:
