Guarini Institute for Government and Leadership

Guarini Speakers Series

The Guarini Speakers Series brings national and state political leaders and policymakers together to discuss timely issues impacting our world.  See our event calendar for upcoming speakers.

On March 31, Senator Cory Booker came to Saint Peter’s University as part of the Guarini Lecture Series. Senator Booker addressed a packed audience in The Duncan Family Sky Room about the idea of the “American dream” and the reality of unemployment rates for young adults.


The Guarini Institute for Government and Leadership at Saint Peter’s University aims to provide a non-partisan forum for discussion of key public policy issues. The Institute sponsors lectures and programs throughout the academic year to promote critical thinking, debate, and careers in public service. Please note, use of the University forum does not imply acceptance or endorsement by the University of the views expressed by any speaker.
