Tisch College is delighted to share with you our fall speaker lineup. Undoubtedly, this semester will be unusual and challenging for all of us and especially for students. We are all in need of a little extra inspiration, encouragement, and conversation, now more than ever. With that in mind, we are hosting more speakers and events than ever before, all in a virtual format this fall. Also new this semester is this fun video announcing a few of our Distinguished Speakers with a surprise at the end. Thank you to Shanley for making the video!
Although there are too many speakers to list in full here, we will host conversations with leaders like author and activist Ijeoma Oluo, CNN political contributor and entrepreneur Van Jones, Tufts alum Hank Azaria, PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, U.S. Congressmen Adam Schiff and Joe Kennedy, 2020 Democratic presidential candidates Pete Buttigieg and Deval Patrick, republican strategist and Tisch College Professor of the Practice Scott Jennings, co-founder of the Black Voters Matter Fund LaTosha Brown, foreign policy expert Tony Blinken, POLITICO founding editor John Harris, NPR political reporter Juana Summers, and many more.
Please register here to receive links to some, or all, of our virtual events. We also often add events and speakers throughout the semester, so stay tuned for updates and additions to the current roster.
