The guest speaker series highlights individuals in long-term recovery who share their personal stories as inspiration for our campus community. Guest speakers typically share their message of hope with specific audiences.  Private events are scheduled for members of the collegiate recovery community.  A campus-community presentation is offered for faculty, staff, students, and members of the greater Tuscaloosa community.  A special invitation is always extended to the local recovering community.
