Green & Gold Speaker Series

The Green and Gold Speaker Series features scholars, artists, writers, and thought leaders whose work resonates with a number of communities across the campus.

The series takes its name from the University's colors because it is intended to reflect the sentiments expressed in our campus Inclusive Excellence Statement and our shared commitment to "work collaboratively upon principles of cultural humility and respect for all to create an atmosphere in which a sense of belonging within our community can flourish.
