The IU Journalism Speaker Series gives students and area residents the opportunity to meet with some of the top media professionals in the country. Recent speakers include CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan, author Gay Talese, The New York Times' David Brooks and Fox Sports' Joe Buck.

The Journalism Faculty Lectureship brings to campus an exemplary media professional or a distinguished media scholar. The lecturer is nominated and chosen by IU Journalism faculty.

All lectures are free and open to the public.
