Lectures & Programs
The academic year at UIndy is rich with lectures and programs on a myriad of topics, which makes it interesting and easy for students to earn Lecture/Performance credit. Many, such as the annual Kellogg Writers Series, are cultural in nature; others are more scholarly. The University Series and Diversity Series were created specifically for students.
The lectures, programs and special events of the University Series are designed to foster campus discussions focusing on UIndy's four learning goals: social responsibility, creativity, performance, and critical thinking.
