The Hammond Lectureship in Religious Ethics and Society was endowed by an anonymous donor in 1995 to honor Guy B. Hammond, who retired in that year, after 38 years of service at Virginia Tech.
The Hammond Lecturer gives a public address and meets with faculty and students in classes and workshops during a two-day campus visit.
Commonwealth Humanities Endowment
We host events for Commonwealth Humanities Endowment Week every few years. In the past, we have hosted talks on topics such as Chinese pop music, movie violence, and the effects of Hollywood stereotypes. Our events also often include interactive workshops for interested persons.
