Faculty Lecture Series

Events like the Faculty Lecture Series provide our faculty members with a venue outside the classroom to share their passion and do what they do best: inspire, question, motivate, and teach. You don’t have to be a student to attend these free community lectures. Join us and be awakened to new ideas and possibilities by some of our remarkable faculty.

All faculty lectures take place in the Goins Building Auditorium.
