The Distinguished Graduate Faculty Lecture is a lectureship
recognizing a faculty member who has made significant contributions to
graduate education at Auburn University. The lecture is jointly
sponsored by the Graduate School and the Auburn Alumni Association. The
Auburn Alumni Association generously provides a $2,000 award to the
recipient, who is nominated by his or her department and selected by a
committee of graduate faculty. Awarded every academic year since
1975-76, the lectureship fosters a better understanding of the
significant scholarly contributions made by Auburn University’s faculty.
* In 2008, the Distinguished Graduate Faculty Lecture was moved from the spring to the fall. To more accurately reflect the timing of the lecture, the numbering sequence skipped ahead one year following the 2012-13 lecture. While the award is presented in fall, the lecture typically occurs in the following spring semester.
