The BE Series presents inspirational talks by amazing guests who challenge the status quo, help us learn about the world and ourselves, and expand the possibilities of who we can all BEcome. We encourage students to explore their diverse identities through the interconnection of personal, professional, and academic development.

We select guests from underserved populations whose goals and accomplishments complement our mission of holistic student development and support. We foster long-term impact by connecting students with presenters through small group mentoring sessions, classroom visits, and more. Many of our presenters are local or live near Oregon, and strive to maintain mentor relationships with UO students.
