With sufficient funds, the Center could attract well known (nationally and internationally recognized) speakers and scholars, as well as survivors, liberators, and rescuers to lecture at St. Cloud State University. These individuals would speak at St. Cloud State University and would, over multiple days, present workshops, visit classes, and deliver presentations. Grand funds would help pay for their travel expenses, honoraria, rights to films, and purchasing materials, etc. The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education currently hosts 2 Holocaust survivors per academic year, in addition to 4 to 6 specialist scholars. Additional funding would provide the University and Central Minnesota community with greater number of presentations.
Additionally, the Center would like to develop and host mini conferences on certain Holocaust and Genocide related topics. Here, renowned scholars would come to St. Cloud State University to discuss and debate specific issues and various topics (in addition to delivering presentations and working with students and faculty.) Some well known individuals might include: Franklin Littell "Genocide Prevention" and/or "Jewish Christian Relations", Christopher Browning "Ordinary Men", Deborah Lipstadt "Holocaust Denial", Vladka Meed "The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising", Yehuda Bauer, "The Holocaust and Jewish Resistance".
