Lafayette gives students opportunities to learn from thought leaders, innovators, and distinguished speakers about key issues affecting our world.
Often visiting speakers also spend time with students in sessions that encourage them to grasp ideas in new ways and challenge them to form and discuss their own views.
To stimulate thought, discussion, and engagement, Lafayette College presents an intellectually diverse program that brings the community face to face with notable thinkers and leaders throughout each academic year. Below is a list of some of our distinguished speakers.
