Provost's Lecture Series


The Provost’s Lecture Series is an opportunity for UHV and Victoria to explore and discuss topics of vital importance to diverse, healthy societies as we engage with nationally renowned researchers and scholars. We began our series in the spring 2013 semester with a lecture by Dr. Wesley Hogan who enlightened many of us about Casey Hayden, a woman with Victoria roots who figured prominently in both civil rights and feminist causes. Dr. Hogan was followed by Douglas Foster who gave us an intimate analysis of post-apartheid South Africa after having spent several years in that country getting to know the powerful and the powerless. The Provost’s Lecture Series is concerned broadly with questions of social justice, and we look forward to hosting speakers that engage and educate us about the challenges we all face as we seek to put our democratic ideals into practice.
