Lois LeeLois Lee, a pioneer in saving children who are victims of human sex trafficking, visited the Graduate School of Education and Psychology on February 21 to serve as keynote speaker at the third installment of the GSEP Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series.

Lee is the founder and president of Children of the Night, the only comprehensive program in North America devoted to children who have been forced into prostitution to survive. She has devoted her life to rescuing America’s children from the horrors of prostitution, abandoning a promising career as a scholar and social policy expert to protect and advocate for these voiceless children.

Generously sponsored by Susan (EdD ’86) and Don Rice, the Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series brings leading agents of change to GSEP to discuss the challenges and opportunities in servant-leadership in communities across the world. Created in 2010, the Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series helps support the GSEP mission of educating students to inspire lasting change in their communities and lead lives of purpose, service, and leadership.
