The events for spring 2018 will be announced soon. Tickets are not required for Speaker Series lectures, but seating is limited and on a first-come, first served basis. Parking is available without a permit in B and C lots only.
“The mission of the series is to bring people to campus to talk about contemporary issues,” said Susan Wawrose, Speaker Series committee chair from UD’s school of law. “They’re inspirational. They’re pulled from the headlines, these are the newsmakers.”
