About the Lecture
The Honors College, with gratitude for sponsorship to Dr. Donald and Judy Schmeltekopf, is excited to announce the Annual Ethics & Culture Lecture. This lecture series addresses publicly relevant topics uniting academic expertise in ethics with a generous-spirited engagement of culture as expressed in film, law, literature, music, politics, religion, and other forms of shared cultural life. Simultaneously, the series highlights the interdependent relation between ethics and culture, regarded from a decidedly Christian perspective, and undergirds renewal of ethically grounded and culturally sound American life.
