Distinguished Lecture Series

Since its dedication in 1977, the Center for Faith and Life has presented acclaimed writers, artists, statesmen, and other public figures thanks, in part, to endowed Lecture Series Funds, such as the Elwin D. and Helen Farwell Distinguished Lecture Endowment, Gerhard Marcks Endowment in Art History, Dr. David J. Roslien Distinguished Lecture in Science and Leadership, Sihler Family Endowment, and Williams Endowment Fund for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Lecture.
