Public Events

The Weissman Center Brings the World to Mount Holyoke College

The Weissman Center hosts renowned leaders on a variety of topics for invigorating and informed lectures, debate, and dialogue. Join us each semester for public talks and other events that invite us all to think independently and analytically about contemporary and historical issues that have public, national, and global implications. These events provide invaluable opportunities to be in direct and meaningful dialogue with pioneers in politics, business, academia, advocacy, sports, and the arts. "Imagination"  is our public program theme for 2016-17.
