Nominate a Speaker for State of State 2015

In case you missed the memo, State of State is an annual conference for the Penn State community and a platform for change. This year’s conference will take place in Alumni Hall on Feb. 14, 2015. The organization aims to unite the community, promote dialogue on and off campus, and serve as a think-tank for State College ideas, both throughout the year and at the conference itself.

However, in order for the organization to achieve successfully all of the aforementioned goals at this year’s conference, they need speakers. The conference’s speakers last year included notable members of the Penn State community like Sam Richards, Michael Bérubé, and Shane McGregor, who spoke on a variety of topics such as town and gown relations, diversity on campus, and general education courses, to name a few.

This year’s conference will focus on four main issues: engaged scholarship, mental health resources, sexual assault awareness, and subcultures within the Penn State community.

If you know someone (whether it be a student, professor, administrator, alumna, or community member) who is particularly well-versed in any of these topics, you can nominate them to speak at State of State 2015 here. Speaker nominations will be live from Monday Nov. 3 to Sunday Nov. 9, and students interested in speaking can apply between Monday Nov. 10 and Sunday Nov. 23.

For more information, stop by the HUB today between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to pick up a flyer and talk to a State of State member about the conference, the speakers, or anything else you might want to know about the organization.
