The President’s Office is looking for speakers for the Spring 2016 Speaker Series.

Departments can submit the names of any contracted speakers that will appeal to a wide audience. The Speaker Series allows for joint promotion of speakers through a poster, press releases, and the website. The speaker must have campus-wide interest and the talk must open to the general public.

The deadline for the 2016 Spring Speaker Series is Monday, November 30.  Please provide speaker name, date of keynote, speaker biography, photo, and event location.

Limited funds from the Office of the President may be available to curtail costs of private receptions and venues. University Events staff members are available to help facilitate speakers and events surrounding the speaker visits.
