Engage. Engross. Edify.

The Beacon Salon Speaker Series is the college’s educational outreach program. Channeling the spirit of the intellectual discourse of the French salons during the Enlightenment, the Speaker Series invites the Central Florida community to partake in lifelong learning at the feet of respected scholars, to enrich their souls through the beauty and vibrancy of visual and performing arts, and to weigh new perspectives on old issues through lectures from breakthrough authors and national speakers.
