The Public Speaker Series
The purpose of the public speaker series is to raise awareness about critical social and political issues and to help empower and inspire our students and our communities to move from scholarship to action.
Previous Speaker and Workshop Series’ themes have included:
- Fall 2009- Spring 2010: “Learning to Live Responsibly in an Irresponsible Time”
- Spring 2009: “Community Engagement Skills-Based Workshop series”
- Fall 2008- Spring 2009: “The Many Faces of Justice”
- Spring 2008: “Social Change Agents and Movements”
Fall 2009's Public Speaker Series theme will be Learning to Live Responsibly in an Irresponsible Time and will focus on different definitions, both theoretical and practical, of social responsibility across diverse perspectives and disciplines and on interpersonal, community, local and global levels.
