Presidential Lecture Series at Meredith College
The Presidential Lecture Series at Meredith College stimulates and enhances the intellectual and academic climate at Meredith College and in the broader community.
The Series features nationally- and internationally-recognized speakers who are invited on the basis of their expertise, accomplishments and relevance to the College's annual campus theme. Often, Meredith students also enjoy the enriching opportunity to interact with the speakers in varied campus events prior to or following the lecture event.
In the spirit of community activism and to continue to foster the College's welcoming and inclusive environment, the lecture events are open to the general public as well as to the Meredith campus community.
About the Series
The Presidential Lecture Series is managed by the Office of the President and the College's Major Events Committee, with input from the Meredith College community.
The Series was established in 2005 with a generous grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. Through the lecture series, Meredith promotes intellectually-rigorous discussions that revolve around the College's annual theme.
