Each November the GTU faculty honors a distinguished professor who embodies the scholarly standards, teaching excellence, and commitment to ecumenism that define the GTU. Nominations are considered by the Council of Deans, who then select the next year’s Distinguished Faculty Lecturer.
Selected audio and/or video recordings and other files for these events can be accessed through the GTU Archives in the Hewlett Library.
