11th chapter in Dean's Speaker Series tackles social concerns
On April 8, the Quinlan community gathered for the 11th chapter in the biannual Dean’s Speaker Series, which focused on building bridges between the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to address social concerns. With Dean Kathleen A. Getz serving as moderator, here is what our panel of experts had to say.
"What we're facing is going to take all of us to introduce a paradigm shift."
—Neli Vazquez-Rowland, president of A Safe Haven
"Developing human capital feeds education. We are not educators, but we want to have an impact."
—Robert Parkinson Jr., CEO of Baxter International
"None of us can get everything we want, but we can all get something if we work together."
—Patricia Van Pelt, Illinois state senator
The next Dean's Speaker Series will take place this fall. For pictures from the latest gathering, which attracted nearly 100 guests to the University Club of Chicago, click here.
