The faculty speaker program provides an opportunity for alumnae/i to meet Bryn Mawr’s faculty and hear about their cutting-edge research, engage in intellectual conversations, and connect with other Mawrters and the College.
Guidelines for Requesting a Speaker
- Plan early! Request a speaker at least three to six months prior to the event. Faculty Speaker Request form.
- A club/group’s initial request for a faculty member should be made by completing the Faculty Speaker Request Form.

- Once a speaker is confirmed, please stay in touch directly with the speaker and copy Alumnae Relations staff on all correspondences.
- Alumnae Relations will arrange and provide for round-trip transportation and overnight hotel accommodations.
- Club/group will pay for ground transportation and meals.
