SpecialEvent CSeries 2015-16 Cover A

Each year, York College hosts a series of special presentations sponsored by a variety of departments and offices on campus. These events bring particularly noteworthy speakers, performances, and artists to campus to address timely and relevant topics. The Center for Professional Excellence will announce the Spring 2016 Vizzi Family Lectureship keynote speaker this fall.

Previous speakers have included Gold medalist Mia Hamm and John Walsh, victims' rights advocate and host of America's Most Wanted show.

Stay tuned for exciting news about the next speaker, and please visit www.ycp.edu/cpe for additional information. The Chloé Eichelberger Business Education Series lecture also will be chosen later in the year. Go to www.ycp.edu to learn more about this popular event.
