Distinguished Speakers Series

Distinguished Speakers Series

Each year, the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences brings to campus a series of prominent leaders in their fields through the Distinguished Speakers Series. These events are free, and some may be open to the public. Tickets are often required for admission. In conjunction with these speaking engagements, special companion events—including panel discussions, faculty lectures, and performing and visual arts productions—are often organized to reflect each speaker's field and the college's annual academic theme.
