About the Community Building Speakers Series

CA’s Community Building Speakers Series hosts thought-provoking speakers on topics that stimulate us to discuss, engage, and build our sense of community here in Columbia.

The engaging and inspiring Dr. Freeman A. Hrabowski III, president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), was the featured speaker at “Diversity Matters: Building on the History of Columbia as a Diverse Community.” The event took place on May 5, 2016, at the Wilde Lake Interfaith Center and was co-sponsored by Columbia Association and the African American Community Roundtable of Howard County. More than 150 people attended.
