The 2021-22 Presidential Speaker Series seeks to answer the questions: What does it mean to build communities? Why is it important? And what are the differences between our local community and the global community?

We all come from unique, individual places of strength and purpose. Together, we can form something that is greater than ourselves. Asking good questions and opening lines of communication that don’t already exist is key to unlocking our potential.

The Presidential Speaker Series will explore how we can find purpose, belonging and strength in our local community, using the resources we have already, to develop meaningful, lasting and sustainable partnerships.

Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to participate and engage in dialogue. Please see below for full event information and check back regularly, as we will continue to add new dates and speakers.
