Lecture Funds

The Office of the Dean of Faculty manages several lecture funds supported by generous donor endowments. Proposals for the use of these funds should be submitted to the Office of the Dean of Faculty at least three months in advance of the event. Proposals should include a profile of the speaker, a budget, and a schedule for the on-campus visit. The schedule for such an event should include dedicated time for the speaker to meet with students.
