Created in 2019, The Hall Family Speaker Series brings to our community the thought leaders who are shaping opinion right now: men and women whose research, writing or activism have people talking and thinking in new ways about how to strengthen our democracy. The variety of civic engagement supported by this gift illustrates that there many ways to positively influence public life and inspires students and adults to find their own.
“MY GREATER GOOD” ALUMNI SPEAKER SERIES
The “My Greater Good” speaker series celebrates the many different ways that Rivers alumni understand and act on their responsibility to create positive change in the world. By sharing their stories of work on behalf of the ‘greater good’ in social and public life, alumni inspire current Rivers students to discover and act on their own definition of active citizenship. Once a month, an alumnus meets with current students in person or through video-teleconference.
