The Last Lecture Series offers the university community the opportunity to hear reflections on life’s lessons and meaning from a current or retired IUPUI colleague of exceptional merit. The featured speaker shares the wisdom he or she has gained through academic pursuits and life experiences; distilling a life of inquiry, reflection, and service into advice for successive generations.
The 2015 Last Lecture is planned for Friday, March 27, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. in the IUPUI Campus Center Theatre. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2015 speaker. All current and retired IUPUI based faculty, administrators, and staff members are eligible for nomination. All IUPUI faculty, retired faculty, staff and students are invited to submit nominations by midnight on November 23, 2014. Nominators should click on the link below to submit a brief description of the nominee along with a short justification why his or her nominee deserves consideration.
A committee of the IUPUI Senior Academy will consider all nominations and select a pool of candidates by mid-December. In January, selected nominees will be invited to submit a synopsis of their proposed presentation.
The Last Lecture Series is sponsored by IUPUI Senior Academy, IUPUI administration, and Indiana University Foundation.
