The Mission

The President’s Speaker Series at Metropolitan State University of Denver brings local, national and international industry leaders, prominent alumni, innovators and trailblazers to campus for dialogue about the most pressing issues of our day. Hosted by MSU Denver President Janine Davidson, Ph.D., the ongoing series provides the greater campus community opportunity for additional exposure to a wide range of thought-provoking and conversation inducing ideas and topics. The President’s Speaker Series has brought such luminaries as former President of Mexico Vicente Fox, Vice Chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Thomas Hoenig, Ph.D., and author Emerson Brookings to the MSU Denver campus.
