Lecture Series
The Lecture Series Committee is charged with the responsibility for administering the University Lecture Series, a program aimed at broadening and enriching the education provided in the classroom by bringing to campus speakers of intellectual distinction. The Office of the Chancellor may provide this committee with names of individuals (e.g. Nobel or Pulitzer Prize recipients) to be considered for the Lecture Series. Chairs may be expected to serve extended terms. Due to the nature of programming, this committee may vote to extend the Chair's appointment and vary the annual length of service.
