OxyTalks is a series of dynamic public events that bring together some of the academy's most creative thinkers with compelling figures from the public and private sectors for a collaborative examination of American culture.
Occidental College has also created a partnership with Zócalo Public Square, an organization that creates nonpartisan discourse through live events and online. The partnership is designed to share Oxy's expertise and intellectual resources with the greater community. These highly engaging discussions reach beyond the classroom and into the Los Angeles community and around California to spark conversations around the issues that matter to us most.
