Student Government will be hosting the first expaND speaker series on Saturday, February 29, 2020.

expaND is a speaker series that was developed this year by the Department of Student Life. It will include short talks on a variety of topics such as education, religion, the environment, gender issues, race and ethnicity, and business. The series seeks to present the Notre Dame student body with the opportunity to hear diverse ideas from unique speakers and an educational experience apart from their regular classes that can expand their minds, hearts, and worlds. 

The theme for expaND 2020 is “The Change You Wish to See,” exploring Mahatma Gandhi’s famous quote: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” As 2020 will prove to be a year of change, expaND asks its participants: What is the change you wish to see? What are your visions for the future? What are the possibilities? The challenges? What will it take for us to create that change? 

All members of the community are invited to apply to be one of the speakers via an online application that will be open from Saturday, September 21, 2019 to Saturday, October 19, 2019.

Finalists will be invited to an in-person interview and asked for further information. 

More information on tickets and speakers will be released in the coming months.
