An exciting lineup of speakers will visit the city and Seattle U this autumn.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan will discuss public schools, journalist and clergyman Chris Hedges will help you avoid losing faith in America, and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan will discuss affordable housing policy in Seattle.
