The President’s Office continues to sharpen the focus of the Spring Speaker Series for the upcoming spring semester. 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 only. The speaker must have campus-wide interest and the talk must be open to the general public.

The Office of the President will provide funding for up to 75 individual posters for each speaker. The poster will need to be designed using the standard Speaker Series format and printed with University Marketing and Communications. A comprehensive poster will not be printed this semester. The speakers, along with bios, pictures, lecture dates, and times, will be publicized on the Speaker Series website and individual media coverage will take place.

Please complete the online form with the following information:  speaker name, date of keynote, biography of keynote, photo, and event location/time.

Just a quick reminder that the University Events staff is available to help facilitate your speakers and events surrounding the speaker visits.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Julie Barnhill at 309-438-8790 or
