CAUSE Speakers Series

About the Lecture Series

For 20 years, the CAUSE Speakers Series has been a vital part of the Center’s education, research, and publishing agenda. The Speakers Series brings outstanding junior and senior scholars to Carnegie Mellon and showcase some of the most recent groundbreaking research on the African American urban experience. It also promotes interaction between a broad range of constituents on the Carnegie Mellon campus—students, faculty, staff, and administrators—and encourages a greater sense of community within the department, college, and university. Equally and perhaps most important, this series aims to reach beyond the campus and foster ongoing communication between the university and the broader Pittsburgh metropolitan community on issues of history, race, and contemporary social change.
