Great Lecture(r)s.

ISI makes available top scholars and nationally known speakers to lecture and debate at campuses across the country.

Great lectures have the power to inspire.

Through ISI-sponsored lectures, students gain unparalleled access to the greatest minds of our time. Themes can range from contemporary issues, such as the economic recovery and multiculturalism, to enduring concerns, such as the best forms of government and the study of liberal arts.
