Each year, High Point University offers a stimulating lineup of unique events for students, faculty, staff and community members. The schedule features a variety of art, music and theatre performances, as well as special speakers who will visit campus. Many events are part of the Faculty Cultural Enrichment Grant Series. The grant series assists HPU faculty in planning vibrant, intellectually stimulating cultural events that feature nationally renowned academics, artists and performers. The grants support programming in all academic disciplines and help introduce students to thought provoking ideas in art, literature, science, philosophy and business.
The Cultural Enrichment Series features scores of world-renowned thought-leaders and speakers, including Steve Wozniak, Steve Forbes, Malcolm Gladwell, Former First Lady Laura Bush, Bill Cosby and Coca-Cola Company Chairman and CEO Muhtar Kent. Guest speakers are selected as part of an intentional effort to provide students and the community the opportunity to understand diverse viewpoints, positions and backgrounds. Members of the community are encouraged to take part in our progress by registering for event updates.
