Leading Voices is an annual summer lecture series inspired by the Great Issues course, a mandatory current events class for Dartmouth seniors that ran for two decades through 1967. Since 2011, each Leading Voices series brings prominent experts and leaders to speak on a theme. The lecture series has been paired with a course for sophomores, who spend the summer academic term together at Dartmouth.
All lectures held in Filene Auditorium, Moore Hall at 4:00 p.m. and are open to the public. Additional details will be published here as available.
