About this Event
The College of Graduate and Continuing Studies is pleased to welcome Guy Raz as the 2021 Residency Conference Keynote and Todd Lecture Series speaker. Mr. Raz is an acclaimed radio and podcast personality, described by The New York Times as “one of the most popular podcasters in history.” Perhaps his best-known show, How I Built This, features in-depth interviews with the world’s greatest innovators, entrepreneurs, and idealists, and the stories behind the movements they built. The show has been lauded by media outlets including the New York Times, Inc, Fortune, the Washington Post, and was recently named one of the ten podcasts that shaped the decade by Harper’s Bazaar. Raz has also been a featured guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon several times.
His first book, How I Built This: The Unexpected Paths to Success from the World’s Most Inspiring Entrepreneurs, was released on September 15th, 2020. Based on his highly acclaimed podcast, the book offers priceless insights and inspiration from the world’s top entrepreneurs on how to start, launch, and build a successful venture.
Since 2008, the Todd Lecture Series has brought revered, provocative and surprising speakers to campus. With a single guest in the fall, a series of lectures in the spring and one in the summer--each selected and hosted by an academic college--each year the series covers a variety of themes while remaining free and open to the public and the students, faculty, and staff.
