Prior to each lecture, you will receive an invitation that confirms the date, time, place, and title of the lecture.  As you know, these lectures are given by newly-appointed distinguished professors and named/endowed Chairs.  This is an important event for the faculty member, as well as the University, and I urge you and your faculty to attend as many of these lectures as your schedule can accommodate.
