Faculty Award Lecture

The faculty award lecture is an annual, academic event typically held one evening in the fall of each year. An NNU faculty member writes a formal paper and delivers it as a scholarly presentation to the community. The faculty member is selected competitively. One other NNU faculty member or faculty member from an institution in the Treasure Valley is asked to give a formal response to the lecture. A reception is given in honor of the presenting faculty member following the lecture.
