The John J. Witmeyer III Dean's Colloquium series, which invites distinguished alumni back to campus to discuss their careers, presents psychiatrist and learning differences specialist Ned Hallowell. He is the founder of the Hallowell Centers, which specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of learning differences, especially attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dyslexia, in adults and children. Having both ADHD and dyslexia himself, he sees them not as disorders but rather as traits that can confer enormous benefit.

 Kimberle Crenshaw, Professor of Law at UCLA and Columbia Law School, is a leading authority in the areas of civil rights, black feminist legal theory, and race, racism and the law. Her work has been fundamental in two fields of study that have come to be known by terms that she coined: Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality.

The 2017 Reading Project selection is Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
