Register once and join us for three important conversations about our current moment.
At Dominican University of California, we continue to do all we can to prepare ethical leaders and support globally responsible citizens — even as the COVID-19 pandemic demands that we adapt to deliver our longest-running and most essential community programs.
We’re pleased to welcome Chasten Buttigieg, Jon Meacham, and the Reverend Al Sharpton to this fall’s Leadership Lecture Series. We’re even happier that they’ve trusted us to broadcast these sessions online — free and available live and on-demand to anyone eager to take part.

Register once and join us live this fall for three important conversations.
For more than 15 years, our Institute for Leadership Studies has hosted our Leadership Lecture Series, in partnership with Book Passage, on our San Rafael, California campus. Ticket revenue has helped fund a variety of Institute initiatives including our Leadership Learning Lab, the Leadership Minor, LeaderShape, and our Global Ambassador program.
This year, the COVID-19 virus makes it impossible to gather in person. But, we believe that our current moment requires — perhaps now more than ever — that we continue to bring people together, advocate for change, and improve conditions for us all.
Extending these leadership sessions in this way is something new and exciting for all of us. Particularly because of our current unprecedented challenges, we hope that you’ll do all you can to spread the word to include others who share our commitment to leadership and social change.
Dominican is grateful for the generous support of our sponsors.
