Chancellor's Lecture and Event Series


The 2011-2012 Chancellor's Lecture and Event Series will feature a variety of lectures and presentations about challenging issues facing us as individuals and communities, cultural performances and an exhibition on the history of Hull-House's commitment to the arts. 

I hope you take the opportunity to review the schedule and join us for one or more of the events.
