Presenter Biographies

Anthony Niedwiecki has been a law school associate dean or dean since 2010. His scholarly research focuses on metacognition and the need to better train students to transfer their learning to new and novel situations. He also teaches courses in Employment Discrimination and Law and Sexual Orientation.  His passion about political and legal rhetoric has driven his community activism and public service.

Niedwiecki was elected city commissioner and vice mayor of a city of 40,000 in south Florida in 2009. He was inspired to run for office after seeing an elected official publicly demean different groups, including the LGBTQ, African-American, and Caribbean-American communities. During that campaign, Anthony married his husband, Waymon Hudson, in San Francisco.

Niedwiecki’s passion for the law and civil rights stems from his life experiences, having seen firsthand how laws can both stifle progress for equality and dramatically expand access to civil rights very quickly. His life is dedicated to improving the community and transforming lives, important values he has carried throughout his life.

It will be held over Zoom and it is complimentary to alumni. 

Registration will close on the evening of November 22.
