Call for 2018 Scholars Week Keynote Speaker Nominations

The Scholars Week Organizing Committee invites nominations for the Scholars Week Keynote Speaker for the week of May 14-18, 2018.  Speakers come from broad academic areas according to a regular schedule; for Scholars Week 2018, the individual will come from the social sciences or business/economics.  Nominations may be from any field within these areas, but whatever the specialty, the nominee must be currently engaged in scholarly and/or creative activity.  Speakers frequently make themselves available for other activities during Scholars Week, but such events are typically arranged with the speaker by the nominating faculty or department in coordination with the Scholars Week Organizing Committee.  The selection criteria will be those the committee has used in the past:  potential to be an engaging speaker, ability to connect with a broad and diverse audience, and career accomplishments.   

Please submit speaker nominations no later than 5 p.m. Friday October 13th, 2017 via the following form:
