Mavericks are bold, unique, visionary difference-makers whose ideas need to be heard.

The University of Texas at Arlington Maverick Speakers Series provides a forum for today’s brightest minds to examine the ideas, actions, solutions, and people that impact the world around us. Celebrating the 10th anniversary season, the Maverick Speakers Series has featured such renowned voices as Michio Kaku, Seth Meyers, Emmitt Smith, Bill Nye, Anderson Cooper, Soledad O’Brien, Daymond John, and Jane Goodall. This isn’t your average lecture series. These are thought-provoking conversations led by innovators who make change happen.

The Maverick Speakers Series is about making a difference, one big idea at a time. That’s what Mavericks do.
