Keynote Speaker

This year's keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Kathleen Bollard, the Vice President and Academic Affairs Officer, University of Colorado. Dr. Bollard is the President’s liaison between system administration and the tenured, tenure-track and nontenure track continuing instructors. Originally from California, Kathleen has lived in Spain, Mexico and Greece, working in five languages in her research on early modern European literature. She holds a bachelor’s in English from Santa Clara University, a master’s and doctorate in comparative literature from the University of California-Berkeley, and an MBA from the University of Colorado.


The Symposium will feature a Bazaar designed to highlight organizations whose mission is to develop the professional capacity of women locally and around the globe. The vendors will offer a variety of handmade goods to choose from. While they can accept credit cards, bringing cash will speed up the purchase process. Vendors will be able to keep 100% of the proceeds generated. Be sure to check them out throughout the day. Learn More.
