We have chosen to list all of The Arts and Sciences Lectures of the past, both in chronological order and by department. We do this to honor those who have earned this distinction and because the topics of the lectures give a good overview of the many dimensions of the College of Arts and Sciences.

About the Distinguished Lecturer Program

Arts and Sciences Lecture Series was established by action of the College of Arts and Sciences Council on March 8, 1968. Its purpose is to honor Arts and Sciences faculty members who have made outstanding scholarly contributions to the University and to their disciplines. There are two lectures each year, a Fall Lecture and a Spring Lecture.
