Christine Spencer, dean of the University of Baltimore's Yale Gordon College of Arts and Sciences, in coordination with Christopher King of Conscious RT, will launch a Dean's Speaker Series titled, "A Lifetime of Service." This series of talks will celebrate local leaders who have positively impacted Baltimore City in their lifetime, and will kick off on Monday, May 14 with Beverly Cooper, vice president of The Reginald F. Lewis Foundation, a private family foundation named after her nephew. The talk will take place at 7 p.m. in the M. Scot Kaufman Auditorium in the William H. Thumel Sr. Business Center (home of UB’s Merrick School of Business), 11 W. Mount Royal Ave. The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration is required (details listed below).
"We are honoring Baltimore's great leaders who have contributed purposefully over their lifetime to making Baltimore a better place," says Dean Spencer. "We will hear from them as they reflect about their lives and personal experiences in making Baltimore the wonderful city we know it to be."
Two other speakers are scheduled for future talks in this series: On June 11, the series will welcome John "Jake" Oliver, who became chairman and publisher of the Baltimore Afro-American in 1986, achieved publisher emeritus status in 2018 and is the great-grandson of the newspaper's founder. On Oct. 8, University of Baltimore president and the first African-American mayor of Baltimore City, Kurt L. Schmoke, will speak. All talks will take place on the second Monday of each month.
