Tisch College is pleased to present an exciting lineup of events with distinguished guests who will share their knowledge, insights, and experience with the Tufts University community:
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.
Thanks to everyone who joined us throughout our Distinguished Speaker Series in Spring 2016. We’ll back in the Fall term with another exciting lineup of speakers. For updates, sign up for the Tisch College Newsletter here.
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.
