Weter Lecture Award

The benefactor of the Weter Lecture Series, the late Professor Emeritus of Biology Ross Shaw, established this lectureship more than 40 years ago to celebrate and uphold the value and heritage of the liberal arts. Those values are embodied in the professional example of Dr. Winifred E. Weter, who for 40 years was a professor of classics at Seattle Pacific and a champion of the liberal arts.

Please consider this invitation to submit applications for the Weter Lecture. Topics should advance the field of knowledge of your discipline and promote the interests of that specialty within the context of the Christian liberal arts university. The recipient of the award will receive a $1500 honorarium and an engraved medallion you can wear with your regalia.

The deadline is Wednesday, May 1, 2024. Proposals should be submitted to the Faculty Life Office: FLO@spu.edu.
