COLLEGE

Speaker Series

Character University presenters have visited hundreds of colleges and universities around the country and have combined forces to create our College Speaker Series. Schools now have the ability to rely on CU Event Coordinators to learn about your campus and schedule the program(s) and presenter(s) that will give your future graduates the experience and wisdom they will need to thrive in life and business. We are consulting with campuses who are losing students who perform well in the classroom, but drop out due to a lack of ability to cope with the pressures of life on their own. We have the ability to enrich the culture of your campus life with events and trainings designed to inspire resilient leaders of character who learn to powerfully serve their fellow students as they locate their purpose and build their confidence. The CU College Speaker Series imparts the knowledge that every life matters and each person has the power to make a significant impact in the lives of others and in the world. Take a tour of our programs and presenters below and reach out to our CU Event Coordinators to begin to create a strategic campus game plan for your students today!

One of the most thought provoking ideas brought up in Surrender to Success looked at the rhetoric we use in our everyday lives. Words that roll off the tongue, but in reality build barriers to success. I distinctly remember the times I had used them to limit myself.
Surrender to Success not only clearly defined self-imposed mental obstacles, but it walked the audience through ways to overcome them and moved the audience into a mindset for success.

Mitch Dickey, Student Body President University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

In my many years working with youth, I have been hard pressed to find any programs with the tone and spirit to match that of Character University and Surrender To Success. The messages are inspiring and the genuine transparency of the presenter is humbling to experience. At the HOBY World Leadership Congress, each of the high school aged ambassadors connected with the message in large part because the presenter knew how to relate to and get the most out of the audience. I recommend Character University programs and their 'Professors' with the highest possible regard.

David Levy, Teacher, Lowell School, HOBY Leader, MD

One thing that stuck with me that I keep reflecting on was a point made in the Surrender To Success program: Remove the word “just” from my vocabulary. I never realized how much I discredit myself by simply putting that word in front of a title. I’m not “just” a college student or “just” a young woman. I am qualified and competent and shouldn’t sell myself short. I am anything but 'just'.
