Ohio Wesleyan's faculty are highly respected and widely published experts in almost every field of learning and world affairs. And they convey their knowledge through inspiring and effective teaching.

Many of these experts are available through our Faculty Speakers Bureau to speak at high school programs and classes, and to community and civic organizations.

To request an OWU faculty speaker for your school or organization, please complete our Faculty Speaker Request Form. We will contact the faculty member, make the arrangements, and notify you. While we will accommodate as many requests as possible, schedule conflicts and demands upon faculty members' time make it difficult to complete all requests.
