UD Speaker Series

2018-19 UD Speaker Series Events

The 2018-19 University of Dayton Speaker Series brings to campus a diverse group of distinguished authors, scholars, artists and activists. Our speakers have achieved substantial national or international recognition, and they initiate purposeful and critical discussion within our community. In alignment with the mission of the University, speakers offer different cultural, political and religious perspectives to engage our students, faculty, staff and community on some of the most important and critical issues of the day.

All events are free and open to the public. No tickets required.

Up Next: Maz Jobrani on Wednesday, Nov. 14
Maz Jobrani, an Iranian-American comedian and actor, will present Maz Jobrani Live, in conjunction with the Creating Inclusive Community Conference. His presentation is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, in Kennedy Union ballroom.
