Dean’s Speaker Series

Hosted by Dean Doug Shackelford and the Frank H. Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise, the Dean’s Speaker Series brings preeminent private and public sector leaders to UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. These nationally recognized experts offer students and the broader community insightful perspectives on a broad range of timely issues, and share the highlights, challenges and turning points of their individual career paths. These events are free and open to the public thanks to the generous support of the Archie K. Davis Endowment, but attendees are required to register.
