McDermond Speaker Series

The Robert C. McDermond Center Speaker Series is open to any student, any major. As part of the speaker series, students interact with business leaders from across the country as they share their experiences and answer questions. Each year the McDermond Center brings in six to eight speakers from a variety of industries. We hope that all DePauw students will participate.

The McDermond Speaker Series also includes the Darnall Alumni Fellows speakers.  These presentations feature distinguished alumni leaders that have made significant contributions in their professional and personal lives.  Giving of their valuable time and energy, these individuals come to campus to share their insights and lessons learned with today's students.  Their talks inspire our leaders of tomorrow with how their DePauw education served them well in launching their lives beyond graduation.
