Distinguished Speaker Workshop Faculty
Since 1971 the Department has sponsored a minicourse, held over a weekend, each year. This program has allowed us to expose faculty and students to thinkers and subject matter beyond our own resources.
These instructors are invited because of their national or international standing and because of their known expertise, typically in human science psychology. Students are consulted regarding possible instructors, and their input is taken into consideration when making the final choice.
Recent faculty include:
