Fred Springer Lecture in International Business
The Springer Lecture Program was endowed by Fred and Margaret Springer in 1987 in honor of the education their daughter, Margaret (Meg) Timmons, received while a student at LVC. According to Timmons, her father had an enormous respect for the value of education, believed in ethical leadership and corporate responsibility, and was committed to making life better for others. More than 20 lectures have been made possible since the program's inception. View a list of past speakers here.
C.F. Tom Lecture in Economics
The lecture was established in 1985 by Dr. C.F. Joseph Tom, then professor of economics, to promote greater interest in the study of economics. Tom, who died in 2004, taught economics at the College for three decades. View a list of past speakers here.
