Diversity Speaker Series

Engaging the Power of Diversity: A liberal arts speaker series logo

Engaging the Power of Diversity: A Liberal Arts Speaker Series started from a generous contribution to promote and encourage diversity dialogues across campus and in the surrounding community. The series of speakers will present on a variety of topics ranging from race, gender, identity, religion, age, veterans, disability and social justice. The selected guest speakers will inspire conversation around sometimes difficult subjects to motivate encounters with different viewpoints and challenges to personal paradigms. The topics and speakers presented do not necessarily represent the views of the College of Liberal Arts, but are meant to provide a more holistic view of society.
