​Brauer Speaker Series

​Coming soon: The Brauer Speaker Series will bring prominent businesspeople from the WashU Olin community and beyond to campus. They are invited to discuss how their values inform the decisions they make every day. These events will be open to all students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

About the Series

Thanks to a Leading Together gift from Stephen F. and Camilla T. Brauer, we’ll be taking a step forward in research and business education. The Brauers’ generous gift creates an endowment that will fund the Stephen F. and Camilla T. Brauer Speaker Series. The series will feature highly regarded thought leaders and public figures who will address the positive influences that free market economics and the American free enterprise system continue to play in economic growth, public policy, and world affairs. Each year, the series is expected to host one high-profile speaker in Graham Chapel as well as two smaller lectures, panel discussions, or debates in smaller venues on campus. The events will be available to both the WashU and St. Louis communities and, when possible, be featured nationally in a livestream.

“This new university-wide lecture series highlighting the critical importance of America’s free enterprise system will be an incredible asset to our extended student, faculty, and business communities. WashU Olin Business School is excited to work with the Brauers to bring in key thought leaders to discuss the market underpinnings of meaningful economic growth across the region, the nation, and the globe.”
