Visiting Scholars Program

The Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Program makes available each year 12 to 13 distinguised scholars who visit approximately 100 colleges and universities, spending two days at each one, meeting informally with students and faculty members, taking part in classroom discussions, and giving a public lecture open to the entire academic community. The purpose of the program is to contribute to the intellectual life of the campus by making possible an exchange of ideas between the Visiting scholars and the resident faculty and students. Since 1979, Zeta chapter at Baylor has hosted the following Visiting Scholars:
