LecturesProfessionals Engaging with Students, Community
Robert B. Church III Memorial Lecture Fund
Our acclaimed lecture series started in 1974 and is funded by the Robert B. Church III Memorial Lecture Fund. This extraordinary and generous fund allows us to bring high-level architects and designers to our college to lecture and often exhibit. To date, hundreds of experts have visited with students, faculty, alumni and others in the community. These lectures are usually held at 5:30 p.m. in Rm. 109/McCarty Auditorium; check the Events Calendar for details.
Since the mid 1990s, General Shale has generously supported lectures, allowing us to bring Pritzker Prize-winners and stand-out design pioneers to the college in a community-wide annual lecture. These lectures are held in downtown Knoxville or on UT campus; check the Events Calendar for details.
We also welcome visiting critics, participants in our professional practice courses, graduation speakers and many others, who bring their knowledge and expertise to our college and community.
