The Susan and Alan Solomont Distinguished Speaker Series at Tisch College, or Tisch College’s Solomont Speaker Series for short, brings to campus (virtually and in person) a diverse group of leaders in civic life to share their perspective and expertise with the Tufts community. The Solomont Speaker Series, formerly known as the Tisch College Distinguished Speaker Series, was made possible by a generous gift from the Solomonts in the spring of 2021 to endow the Series and recognizes the many ways in which Alan and Susan Solomont have served and supported Tufts University and Tisch College. The Series’ renaming honors Dean Emeritus Alan Solomont’s innovative leadership of the College and his strong support for establishing and growing the program.
