Last Lecture - Overview

At the end of each academic year, the faculty members of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences gather together to celebrate the year, recognize outstanding achievements by their colleagues, honor retiring faculty members, and socialize together. After dinner, attendees are treated to a presentation, "The Last Lecture," by an esteemed member of the faculty whose identity is kept secret until he or she is announced. A collection of several of the essays are found at this site.
