Distinguished Speakers Series

The Farquhar Honors College brings to the NSU main campus a series of prominent leaders in diverse fields. In conjunction with these engaging lectures, special companion events—including Honors student seminars and group discussions, panel discussions, faculty lectures, and other presentations—may be organized to reflect each speaker's field of expertise. These events are free, and some may be open to the public. Tickets are often required for admission to the Distinguished Speakers Series lectures.
