Faculty Colloquium Records Collection

Information about the Collection

The Faculty voted in 1973 to create a new Faculty Lecture Series. This series was called the Longwood College Faculty Colloquium. The series was designed to present all interested faculty members engaged in research and writing with an opportunity to share their results with the whole college community. In the early 1980s Longwood’s Colloquium invited Hampden-Sydney Professors to participate.

The provenance of this collection is unknown.
