We are the Distinguished Speakers Board, also known as DSB.
We strive to bring world-renown speakers to the Boulder campus that will challenge the community and encourage thoughtful dialogue.
We have brought speakers such as Laverne Cox, Buzz Aldrin, Brené Brown, Viola Davis, Anderson Cooper and many, many more.
We're excited for you to see what we have up our sleeves this year.
Our mission is to bring speakers of the highest caliber, who will intellectually stimulate the student body and the surrounding community. Ultimately, we hope to inspire people by bringing some of the world's greatest minds to the University of Colorado Boulder.
