Emily Montenegro

As the Director of Lectures, Emily and the Lectures Committee plan events that are entertaining and interactive – definitely not your typical classroom experience. They strive to bring a diverse variety of speakers including celebrities, athletes, and experts whose experiences will give students new insights into our world. Events reflect varying formats such as lectures, moderated discussions, debates, and often include an opportunity for students to ask their own questions. Past speakers include: Megan Rapinoe, Karamo Brown, David Dobrik, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Nicholas Sparks, and Anderson Cooper, as well as Olympians Ryan Lochte, Aly Raisman, and Kerri Walsh. It’s time for you to join the conversation!
