Created by a gift from the Leon Lowenstein Foundation, the Distinguished Speaker Series was created to allow the Nazarian College to bring high-level speakers to campus to inspire our students. Past speakers have included Henry Cisneros, former Secretary of HUD in the Clinton Administration; Jane Wurwand, founder of Dermalogica, the largest professional skincare brand in the world; Steve Rabuchin, Vice President for Amazon Alexa Voice Services and Alexa Skills; Michael Grillo, award-winning film producer; Michael Kramer, CEO and founding partner of Ducera Partners; and Bruce Gersh, President of People, People En Español and Entertainment Weekly. Rabuchin, Grillo Kramer, and Gersh are alumni of the Nazarian College.
