Diversity - Speakers

Each semester, the Diversity Committee invites a number of distinguished speakers to present on an area within the broad range of diversity topics. Talks have ranged from hour-long brown bags to longer colloquia or symposia. Speakers are broadly represented and have included members of student associations; University of Maine professors, staff, and alumni; members of local community organizations; and speakers from other universities and academic institutions.
