We’re proud to bring world-renowned speakers to UB for the annual Distinguished Speakers Series. As we open our doors to the community, we hope you’ll join us for thought-provoking discussions and inspirational stories.

Amy Schneider is an American software engineer and recent “Jeopardy!” champion. Following an impressive 40-game winning streak, she became the most successful woman ever to compete on “Jeopardy!” She is second all-time in the show’s history, trailing only Ken Jennings, and the 11th highest-earning contestant of all time across all American game shows. Schneider is also the first openly transgender contestant to qualify for the Tournament of Champions.

Schneider’s upcoming book, “In the Form of a Question,” serves as an inspirational memoir and an exploration of what it means to ask questions of the world and of yourself.
