Honors College

Paul W. Martin Sr. Lectureship

The Paul W. Martin Sr. Lectureship was established by Dr. H. Lee Martin in 2005. The purpose of the lecture is to bring nationally-known leaders to the Honors College, thereby giving Honors students and the middle Tennessee community important exposure to well known experts. One or two Martin Lectures are given each academic year. Some effort is made to host a speaker whose renown or topic of interest coincides with the theme established for the Honors Lecture Series.
