The University of Texas at Arlington Maverick Speakers Series provides a forum for today’s brightest minds to examine the people, ideas, actions, and solutions that impact the world around us. This isn’t your average lecture series.

With the conclusion of our eighth season of the Maverick Speakers Series, more than 60,000 people have come together to enjoy many evenings with some of the leading voices of our time. Past speakers include such luminaries as Ken Burns, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Thomas Friedman, Cokie Roberts, Bill Nye, Mark Kelly, Anderson Cooper, and many others. This year alone brought several outstanding speakers to Maverick Country, including Mia Farrow, Daymond John, Jane Goodall, and more.

The Maverick Speakers Series continues to be free and open to everyone. We can’t wait to see you all for another great season of thought-provoking discussions and illuminating entertainment.
