Community Seminar Series

2018–19 Academic Year: Fall Semester

The Community Seminars and Lectures Series provides opportunities to read and discuss great works in the unique St. John’s manner. Our discussion-based learning model provides participants a fresh experience remarkably different from typical learning venues. The small, intimate setting ensures spirited dialogue where all participants have a voice. Seminars are open to curious minds from our surrounding community, including high school aged students and adults of all ages. The Community Seminars and Lecture Series is supported by the Carol J. Worrell Series on literature.

The following lectures and seminars are FREE and OPEN to the public.

See the Dean’s Lecture Series for more lectures open to the public.
