Learning, Discovery and Engagement Speaker Series

Posted on Friday, September 1, 2017

The purpose of this series is to underscore our commitment to the free exchange of ideas, consideration of diverse points of view, speech and dialogue as fundamental and essential to a higher education.

Our invited national speakers will deliver their points of view with intelligent passion and conviction from their different perspectives on the political continuum. This series aims to challenge our students past repeating what the hear or read toward aligning their points of view through a well-rounded, critical education without closing out others. Each of our speakers will also share their own message related to their personal mission.

Download and share the poster with students.

Both speakers are free but you MUST have a ticket. Student tickets can be picked up at the ASUN Center for Student for Student Engagement on the 3rd Floor of The Joe.  Monday- Thursday 8am-8pm, Friday 8am-5pm and Saturday 10am-2pm.
