About the Distinguished Lecture Series Committee
At its core, Distinguished Lecture Series is committed to seeking out and spreading powerful ideas. Through various speaking events, Distinguished Lecture Series seeks to broaden the educational experience of UW Madison Students and the surrounding community by bringing the smartest, most engaging and influential people to campus who encourage thought-provoking conversations and ideas. Distinguished Lecture Series is unique in that we are entirely student run and as such all of our programing is designed, organized, marketed, and put on by students. Participation on the committee offers students the opportunity to learn marketable skills in event planning, marketing, and leadership and to be exposed to a diverse array of people, backgrounds, and ideas.
Interested in joining the committee?
Membership is open to all students at UW Madison. Email us today for more information or come to our weekly meetings. Meetings for the Fall semester will be held from 7-8 pm in Union South. Check TITU for meeting room locations!
