Mizzou Speaker Series

Speakers at MU create memories and inspire personal growth. Our alumni still tell stories of listening to President Harry S Truman, Maya Angelou, and Jerry Seinfeld. Individual schools, colleges, and organizations periodically host guest lecturers for specific groups of students, but Mizzou does not have a permanent source of funding for speakers of general student interest. The Mizzou Speakers Series will enhance the stature of guest speakers and create a signature, general-interest event at Mizzou.
