Marymount’s proximity to our nation’s capital enables the University to bring notable leaders to speak at University-wide lectures, give in-class presentations, talk with students at informal gatherings, or address Commencement ceremonies.
The Most Reverend Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town, South Africa, General Colin Powell (USA, Ret.), and White House journalist Helen Thomas are among those who have addressed Marymount students.
