Call for nominations
The University of Manitoba is now accepting proposals from across the UM community for the next Knight Distinguished Visiting Lecturer. The nomination deadline is June 15, 2020.
Through the Robert and Elizabeth Knight Distinguished Visitors Program, UM faculty, staff and students have the opportunity to attend thought-provoking lectures on a variety of topical issues of interest to the UM community.
The program seeks to enhance the quality of higher education at UM and enrich its academic life by supporting visits to the University from:
scholars in the fields of commerce, finance, economics, political studies, history and literature leaders in the areas of commerce, industry and government
outstanding achievers from other disciplines who have made distinguished contributions to the advancement of knowledge or to cultural, social and economic development
In addition to public lectures, distinguished visitors are encouraged to engage in other activities that allow them to interact with UM faculty, staff and students, as well as members of the public at large.
