Change the Status Quo Speaker Series

What is the CSQ Speaker Series?

The CSQ Speaker Series is an extension of our Change the Status Quo Conference. Each speaker reflects upon what guests experience during our conference. Where our conference workshops emphasize educating guests, each speaker in our CSQ Speaker Series hosts a one-hour presentation or workshop focused on social justice issues leaving guests to feel empowered bring what they have learned and go out and take action.

Why Host the Speaker Series?

Historically, the CSQ Speaker Series presentations and workshops provided a space to begin or continue discussions that occurred at the conference. Although our conference is a one-day event, each year our team at the Center for Service in Action hopes to help students and community members use what they have learned at the conference to foster change in their own lives as well as the lives of others.

Past Speaker Series presentations and workshops can be found here.
