Provost's Lecture Series at the ICA

The stage at the Provost Lecture SeriesA partnership between the Office of the Provost and the ICA at VCU, the Provost’s Lecture Series provides a forum for presentation and discussion that highlight important issues of the day.

A signature event for the ICA, each lecture will include an in-person audience, and can also be viewed via live stream.

The purpose of this series is to raise the profile of VCU faculty within the local, national and international communities; to inspire the community with world-renowned speakers; and to provide cross-disciplinary views/solutions from speakers with divergent backgrounds working on common, societal issues/problems. An annual theme will provide coherence among the lectures and ensure that all academic disciplines within the university are included.
