Marylhurst Speaker Series

Voices for Change

Applying the Liberal Arts

Oregon HumanitiesAll are invited to the Marylhurst campus for meaningful conversations led by expert facilitators on today’s issues of social justice. In 2017-18, we call on our community to be voices for change. We’ll show how application of a liberal arts education to the real world results in real change. Our speakers will address issues around global immigration, racism and sexism, power and privilege, higher education reform, world hunger, and more.

The Marylhurst Speaker Series is hosted by Marylhurst University’s Department of Interdisciplinary and Applied Liberal Arts, offering a master’s degree in food systems and society and bachelor’s degree in liberal studies with concentrations in communication and media, environmental studies, social and cultural studies, and an individualized degree plan.  

Select talks are made possible by the generous support of Oregon Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Oregon Cultural Trust.
