LEARNING IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT: THE GLOBAL SPEAKER SERIES

Newark Academy strives to expose students to global issues that shape the world in the classroom and beyond. Since 2008, NA’s Global Speaker Series has brought distinguished individuals from around the world to address the NA community, enrich students’ understanding and broaden their intellectual horizons.

The Global Speaker Series committee, which includes student, faculty, administration and parent representatives, brings thought-provoking speakers to campus four times each year. Speakers address current global issues, including gender and racial equality, freedom of speech, environmental sustainability, foreign affairs, philanthropy and more.
