Public Lectures and Panels

To provide context around the issues of the 21st century, the institute plans a speaker series addressing public leadership and current issues facing the region, such as elections, water, agriculture, infrastructure, transportation, air pollution, education, criminal justice, and poverty. The speaker series will feature regional, national and international experts on a range of topics. This exposure will give students and the San Joaquin Valley community a broader perspective on leadership issues and challenges faced by public servants.

The next speaker forum features Ruben Navarrette and Patti Solis-Doyle in a free, public event. For free parking, use code 331820.
