Each semester, Commonwealth Honors College celebrates faculty who have made a significant contribution to research or creative activity. These faculty share their ideas and insight with honors students in plenary sessions open to the campus community. The lectures highlight academic excellence and scholarship and are also designed to complement the Honors Seminar course entitled "Ideas that Changed the World."
