Potter College Alumni Speaker Series
The Potter College Alumni Speaker Series celebrates the accomplishments and diverse paths our alumni have taken, while advising current students on career options and networking opportunities. Meeting with alumni will help assist students in identifying and articulating the competencies and job-ready skills that that are developing in their coursework and majors.
In Potter College, our mission is to help students expand the range of their opportunities by providing them with a broad education that will prepare them for meaningful work in an almost limitless number of careers across a lifetime.
Presently speaking engagements are hosted virtually and include a keynote from the presenter followed by a Q&A with students.
