THE STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION

The Golden Tribe Lecture Series

The Golden Tribe Lecture Series was re-established in Fall 2010 to provide the student body with a series of speakers sponsored by the Student Government Association in collaboration with Union Productions. The Golden Tribe Lecture Series is an academically focused speaker series, which attempts to connect students to outstanding individuals who are either experts in their field or working at the forefront of a relevant political or social issue. The mission of the series is to engage students in issues and dialogue that will positively benefit their overall academic, scholastic, or humanitarian experience.

2014-2015 Speakers
