Past Events

Tisch College Distinguished Speaker Series

One of our signature programs, the Tisch College Distinguished Speaker Series brings leaders from a range of fields and perspectives to campus to discuss public issues. During their visits, our guests connect with students and faculty for informative roundtable discussions and deliver public remarks. Through the Speaker Series, we strive to educate, enlighten, and provoke students and the entire University community, in the hopes that they will be inspired by the leaders they meet.

Check back soon for news about the Spring 2016 lineup of our Distinguished Speaker Series!

Other Featured Events

Throughout the academic year, often in partnership with other Tufts schools and organizations, Tisch College hosts or co-sponsors a diverse slate of exciting events for students, faculty, staff, and all members of our Tufts and host communities. These events span our work in education, research, and practice, and touch on areas like public policy, social entrepreneurship, political engagement, and more.
