Nominations for the J. James Woods Lecture Series
The Woods Lecture Committee at Butler University invites
nominations for future lecturers. Colleges or departments as well
as individual members of the Butler community are welcome to submit
nominations. The committee divides nominations into two kinds:
The committee will typically sponsor between four
and seven university lecturers in an academic year. These
speakers should attract a large audience from on campus and the
Indianapolis community. The committee will take primary
responsibility for organizing visits by University Lecturers.
University Lecturers are selected during the spring prior to the
academic year of their visit. For full consideration, please send
suggestions to Rissa
Guffey, administrative support for the Woods Committee, by
The committee will also provide funding to academic departments
who wish to bring in lecturers in their particular field of science
or mathematics. While these visits are oriented towards somewhat
smaller audiences than the University lectures, all departmental
lectures must be publically advertised and be accessible and
relevant to the general public. The sponsoring department will be
responsible for organization of all arrangements for the
departmental lecturer's visit.
The committee accepts nominations for departmental lecturers on
a rolling basis, subject to available funds. All proposals must be
submitted at least 30 days prior to the intended event date.
For detailed guidelines and nomination forms, please contact Rissa Guffey.
