United Pittsburgh Speaker Series

Prominent speakers discussed Pittsburgh's most pressing challenges--and meaningful solutions--in a series of public presentations to students and community residents alike. These community forums were open to the public and were free of charge.

All presentations began at 6:30 p.m. and were held on the Duquesne University campus in College Hall, Room 104, unless otherwise noted. NO PRESENTATION on March 4, 2019 due to Spring break.
