Lecture Series

Main Content

Each year, the UHP hosts a Distinguished Lecture Series of 2-4 speakers. These engaging lecturers are from a broad range of disciplines and are selected based on their expertise as it applies to the human condition. The schedule of lectures will be posted on The 4-1-1. Honors students are expected to attend unless they have a class or work conflict. Attendance will be taken outside of the lecture hall.

Students are expected to model professional behavior during the lectures. This means giving the lecturer your full attention and refraining from talking and texting.

The morning after the lecture, the UHP hosts a breakfast discussion with the Distinguished Lecturer and up to 20 honors students. Students must reserve a seat for the breakfast by coming to the UHP office. Things come up occasionally that prevent a student from attending a breakfast for which s/he signed up; if this should happen, please contact the front desk at 453-2824 or honors@siu.edu. Failure to do so will exclude the student's eligibility for one full year of breakfast seminars.
