Presidential Speaker Series

April 2013

Since the spring of 2011, Gonzaga University President Dr. Thayne M. McCulloh has sought to bring well-known speakers to campus who, through their lives and work, reflect Gonzaga's values of scholarly research, social justice, and inspired transformation. The Presidential Speaker Series welcomes the entire Spokane community to be part of these special events. Our 125th anniversary celebration features our biggest speakers yet!
