Each semester, the Excellence in Leadership program invites nationally recognized leaders to our campus to serve as keynote speakers. These speakers share their experiences, expertise, and wisdom with our students.
Our speakers series has hosted a range of accomplished professionals including: Oscar nominee Edward James Olmos, civil rights leader Reverend Jesse Jackson, Fox News contributer and former White House Staff Member Karl Rove, former Governor of Vermont and Chair of the Democratic National Committee Howard Dean, journalists Laura and Lisa Ling, education reformer Geoffrey Canada, WNBA superstar Tamika Catchings, Tom's Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie, Kiva founder Jessica Jackley, and many others.
Often, our best and brightest students are invited to eat dinner with these speakers or engage them in a small group discussion.
