World Within Reach Speaker Series
The Speaker Series brings The World Within Reach through engaging discussions led by renowned guest speakers from across the globe. Past speakers include General Colin Powell and a debate between former Governor Howard Dean and Karl Rove. The Speaker Series is purely a student-organized agenda led by the university's Student Association. It was only after SA brought the series to the attention of University senior administration, re-engineered SA's budget and garnered massive student support that The World Within Reach Speaker Series happened. With the series, SA hopes to bring to UAlbany the most influential voices in politics, science, business, journalism and technology to discuss pertinent current topics in their fields.
