Description

The Visiting Scholars Program aims to enhance intellectual exploration and academic excellence by bringing to campus each semester a number of scholars who represent a wide variety of intellectual disciplines and whose public lectures deal with a diversity of challenging and thought-provoking topics. Selected scholars visit campus for one or two days and give a public presentation, visit classes in his or her discipline and participate in other activities arranged by the host department. Scholars are nominated by faculty each semester and selected by the Visiting Scholars Committee.
