What Matters to U

What Matters To U is SEPA’s flagship event. The first installments - featuring Bill Nye and Ken Jeong - took place in February and April of 2019. The moderated discussions were a huge success among the student body.

The purpose of What Matters To U is to bring thought leaders, change makers, and innovators to spark conversation and action within the campus community. The program aims to provoke discourse about relevant topics oftentimes not covered in the classroom, and to engage students with a variety of perspectives.
