Public invited to suggest speakers for 2016-17 Lyceum speakers

Victoria College’s Lyceum Committee invites VC students, faculty, staff and the community to recommend speakers for its 2016-17 series.

“Each year, the Lyceum Committee strives to offer a well-rounded speaker series with topics that appeal to people from different walks of life,” said Robert Hodde, VC Lyceum Committee chair. “Gathering speaker and topic ideas from the community helps ensure we’re offering a diverse speaker lineup, much like the one we’re presenting this year.”

As a part of this year’s Lyceum Lecture Series, Zak Ebrahim, author of “The Terrorist's Son: A Story of Choice” spoke at Victoria College in September, followed by Dr. Mario Livio, renowned astrophysicist and author of “Brilliant Blunders,” who spoke in Victoria in October.

Next in the series, Kevin Booth will give a talk about the American Drug War at noon on Tuesday, Feb. 23 at the VC Student Center. Maria Konnikova, author of “Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes,” will close out the series at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Apr. 6 at the Leo J. Welder Center for the Performing Arts.

Anyone who wants to suggest a particular speaker for the 2016-17 series can go to, click on “Recommend a Speaker,” and complete the form, providing as much detail as possible to assist the committee in its review of proposed speakers.

Speaker suggestions are limited to two submissions per person.

The deadline to submit Lyceum speaker suggestions is Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015.
