New Steiner Book for 2023-2024 Season!

The Sylvia and David Steiner Speaker Series brings creative practitioners who push boundaries, defy definition, and demonstrate excellence in all aspects of the arts, to our campus for deep engagement with our students and faculty. The series is administered by the STUDIO with the assistance of an advisory committee comprised of faculty from around the university. Read more about our 2023-2024 guests here!

The STUDIO invites members of the CMU community to bring a guest lecturer of their choice to virtually visit CMU. Limited support is also available for in-person visits; please see details below. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to nominate guests who align with the goal of the Steiner Speaker Series: to bring creative individuals to CMU who share diverse perspectives and interdisciplinary expertise in the arts, and who address our current moment in timely ways. We strongly encourage proposals to bring visitors who identify as women, BIPOC, and/or LGBTQIA+.
