The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville International Speakers Series is designed to expose people of all ages and backgrounds to experts in the international arena. The bigger picture for this series is to help internationalize the SIUE campus and to give students direct exposure to people who regularly travel in other parts of the world. The SIUE International Speakers Series is sponsored by SIUE Office of Educational Outreach, SIUE International Programs, SIUE Department of Political Science, SIUE Peace and International Studies, St. Louis Council of Foreign Relations, and World Affairs Council. Each program will consist of a 30- to 45-minute presentation with a question and answer period to follow. The Fall lineup is scheduled for the SIUE, Morris University Center Mississippi – Illinois Room (2nd floor) from 12:30-1:45 pm. The series is a free event and is also open to the public. Convenient parking is available in Lot B for a fee.
