Distinguished Lecture Series

The objective of the Distinguished Lecture Series is to enhance the academic environment through individual discipline and interdisciplinary topics. Supported by the Office of the Provost and the Student Activities Council, the series offers the Northwest campus and surrounding communities with opportunities to hear from extraordinary individuals from throughout the globe. Scholars, world travelers and leaders in their fields visit the Northwest campus to share their wisdom, insight and experiences.

The Distinguished Lecture Series and James H. Lemon Lecture Series
is on hiatus during
the 2020-2021 academic year.

The James H. Lemon Lecture Series is named in honor of James H. Lemon, a founder of the Fifth District Normal School, which is now Northwest Missouri State University.
