About 'Cane Talks

The University of Miami introduces ’Cane Talks—lively ten-minute presentations by leading thinkers in the UM community illuminating big questions we face in the next century.

Globally recognized faculty leaders and alumni, as well as accomplished students, explore the social, ecological, technological, creative, biological, and political ideas that are shaping our society and transforming our daily lives. These ’Cane Talks mark a new tradition of Miami scholars and other leaders sharing their research, work, service, and questions with the larger community as we look toward the University’s centennial just a decade away. ’Cane Talks explore the global challenges of the next century and our work to address them. We are one U and one world—let’s explore it and shape it together.
