Commencing Fall 2020, The University of Houston Clear Lake (UHCL) will provide a highly engaging speaker series. Located in the nation’s fourth largest and most diverse city, UHCL is a future-orientated public urban university located next to NASA-JSC, serving a highly diverse student population and a technologically evolving economy.
The Big Questions Speaker Series will be focused upon the most critical educational, social, environmental, and technological challenges facing higher education and communities, and will present differing perspectives and authoritative world-class experts to address both challenges and opportunities. The overall purpose of this series is to create awareness, foster informed dialogue, and create communities of practice bearing upon our collective futures.
