Gavin '05 to Speak at All-College Hour Speaker Series

This Wednesday, March 13 at 2:30 p.m., Geneseo will host alumnus Sean Gavin '05 for the All-College Hour Speaker Series in the MacVittie College Union Ballroom.  Gavin's talk is titled "Never Be Outward," aligning with SUNY Geneseo's commitment to excellence. A light reception will begin at 2:15 p.m. in the MacVittie College Union Ballroom.

For more than seven years, Gavin has worked on numerous political campaigns and on Capitol Hill in both the US Senate and the House of Representatives.  In 2012, he managed United States Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand’s successful re-election in which she received 72% of the vote - the largest percentage ever obtained in New York State history. He has been recognized by City & State, the Irish Echo, and the San Francisco Chronicle for his campaign accomplishments.

The All-College Hour Speaker Series is a campus initiative that supports the College mission and embodies the principles of "The Bringing Theory to Practice Project." It aims to provide opportunities for the campus community to come together and engage in learning that promotes cognitive, emotional, and civic development.  The topics of the series are intended to challenge thinking, spur self-reflection, encourage civil discourse, and promote social responsibility.

The All-College Hour Speaker Series is organized by Milne Library and the MacVittie College Union and sponsored by the college's Division of Student and Campus Life and Academic Affairs.
