Speakers Trust Fund

Mission Statement

The name of this organization shall be the Speakers Trust Fund of the Student Bar Association. The Speakers Trust Fund of the Student Bar Association shall provide a forum for the equitable distribution of the Speakers Trust portion of the Student Activities Fee. It shall maintain an open door policy for every student organization at Penn State Law. The Trust shall promulgate an agenda for the student body that shall include, but not be limited to, providing students with a slate of speakers that will enhance the quality of life at the School and encourage diversity of ideas.

The Speakers Trust shall review student organization proposals for speakers in an objective, nondiscriminatory manner. It shall encourage student organizations to sponsor speakers of premier quality and esteem with various backgrounds and experiences to reflect the growingly diverse student body. While student organizations may invite speakers with controversial, and even offensive, ideologies, the Trust does not necessarily endorse these speakers.

The Speakers Trust shall also sponsor speakers on its own. The Trust shall strive to invite speakers who contribute to the stimulation and diversity of ideas and who are of interest to a majority of the student body. The speakers invited personally by the Trust will not be offensive in nature.
