The Professional Speaker Series invites professionals from all areas of the publishing industry to campus—in person or virtually—to give a lecture on a pertinent topic followed by an in-depth Q&A session with students and interested university and community members. This event is a great networking opportunity in an informal setting and a chance for students to learn about careers that engage their skills in the English and publishing fields.
