Presidential Lecture Series
The Presidential Lecture Series stimulates and enhances the intellectual and academic climate of the University. The Series features distinguished speakers who are invited on the basis of their expertise, accomplishments, and relevance to the University’s mission; in particular our four pillars of distinction: Faith, Discovery, Leadership, and Community.
Often, Mount students also enjoy the enriching opportunity to interact with the speakers in varied events prior to or following the lecture event. To continue to foster the University’s welcoming and inclusive environment, the lecture events are open to the general public as well as to the Mount community and alumni.
