About the Lecture Series

In 2007, the Dean’s Advancement Council of the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences provided funding to establish the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences Voyages of Discovery Lecture Series. The series advances the spirit of exploration and discovery that is the hallmark of the liberal arts and has become the premier intellectual event for students and faculty of ECU, the citizens of eastern North Carolina, and a showcase for the quality of academic life at ECU. Each year, the series features thought provoking and accomplished leaders from a variety of disciplines who provide insight into important issues in today’s society, and who share their experiences and perspectives.
