The All-College Hour Speaker Series supports the College mission and embodies the principles of The Bringing Theory to Practice Project. The aim of the series is to provide integrative opportunities for the campus community to come together to engage in learning that promotes cognitive, emotional, and civic development. The topics of the series are intended to challenge thinking, spur self-reflection, encourage civil discourse, and promote social responsibility. The series is sponsored by Student and Campus Life. All sessions take place during the All-College Hour (2:30-3:45 PM).
