2017 UFSC Oratorical Topics

“The African-American Dollar”

It is great that Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.  How can African-Americans spend their money to have a greater impact for future generations and the American culture as a whole?

What is the future of Banking?

Financial Institutions such as Chase, Wells Fargo and Bank of America have been the subject of law suits due to unethical practices.  How has this impacted the banking industry?

 “Inclusion: Afro-Latino Partnerships with State and Civil Societies in the Americas”

Historically, United States has ignored the plight of Afro-Latinos, however; various countries within Latin America have taken a fresh approach to these marginalized populations.  What are Latin American countries doing to include Afro-Latinos and other marginalized groups within the state and civil society?  What modalities are being employed to increase economic and political participation and to improve Afro-Latino economic, political, and educational status?  How can these strategies be used in the United States?

“The Art of Social Entrepreneurship”

The areas of social entrepreneurship and corporate social responsibility are booming fields.  Who are the companies and leaders in the social and corporate responsibilities and businesses that focus on “doing good” as part of the core mission?  What has made them successful when others have failed? How do they integrate social giving in their professional endeavors?

 “Lessons From the Top: Celebrating Over 40 Years for Financial Excellence by African Americans.”

In Civil Rights, Medicine, Religion and Sports we have no problem naming and highlighting the accomplishments of African Americans.  What about the Financial Services Industry? Who are the black financial pioneers that have blazed a path for all us today? What were their success strategies and how can we use them today and in the future?

The local competition is March 17, 2017. Contact Scholarship & Mentoring Chair Matt Lopez at Scholarship@ufscps.org for details of the competition.
