Outreach Speakers

Would your class or community group like to have a guest speaker address issues related to the Middle East? 

CMES will arrange for a University of Arizona student (from a Middle Eastern country or an American expert in Middle Eastern Studies), UA faculty member, or a visiting scholar to give a guest lecture to your classroom or community group.

If you want to arrange a speaker for your class or group, email Abby Limmer - alimmer@arizona.edu.

If you’re interested in supporting the Outreach Speaker program, please visit the program's UA Foundation page.
