The Great Issues Committee

Welcome to the Great Issues Committee's home on the web. On this website, you can find the most up-to-date information about upcoming Great Issues Speakers and events.

Past Success

Last year was a great year for the Great Issues Committee, bringing a full spectrum of speakers to Saint Louis University. Speakers ranging from Dr. Atul Gawande, MacArthur Fellow and consultant for the Affordable Care Act to Mitch Albom, award-winning author and Morris Dees, founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center were welcomed to the Saint Louis University campus by the Great Issues Committee.

We have a great year planned for you full of interesting and diverse speakers covering a myriad of topics. Be sure to check our upcoming speakers and events so you don't miss out on all of the action as other speakers may be added to the lineup throughout the year.

Also, please keep in mind that if you have a suggestion for a Great Issues speaker you would like to see visit campus, be sure to let us know! We're always open to new suggesti
ons, and who knows, you could help bring the next great speaker to campus!
