Lecture and discussion information for faculty

University of Georgia faculty have the opportunity to share their research and interests with Honors students in informal settings through our Honors Lunchbox Lectures and Honors Book Discussions series.

Lunchbox Lectures

Each semester, the Morehead Honors College hosts weekly lunchtime lectures featuring faculty who provide a lecture and/or lead a discussion with a small group of Honors students. These lecture series allow our students to make connections with faculty from across campus and learn about their research. Students sign up voluntarily based upon interest in the topic.

The series takes place in Moore Hall on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the 12:20-1:10 p.m./12:30-1:20 p.m. class periods throughout the year. Honors provides lunch for the faculty member and 25 students, creating an intimate setting for a lecture and discussion.

Lunch is provided through support from the Morehead Honors College Fund of Excellence.

Book Discussions

The Morehead Honors College hosts faculty-led book discussions on weekday evenings throughout the year. Discussions are held over dinner, either in professors’ homes or in Moore Hall. The book is chosen by the faculty member, and books are provided to the 10 students registered for the discussion at the beginning of each semester.

The cost of dinner and books is made possible through the support of the Morehead Honors College Fund of Excellence.

If you are interested in leading a lunchbox lecture or book discussion, contact Maria de Rocher at derocher@uga.edu or 706-542-6908.
