Organizing a Beatty Memorial Lecture

Responsibilities of a host unit

Every Beatty Memorial Lecturer must be hosted by a department, Faculty, or other administrative unit at McGill. Groups often choose to suggest and organize the visit of a Beatty Lecturer to coincide with a major anniversary, when graduates and their families are already visiting campus for Homecoming. According to the terms of the endowment, the only criteria are that the Beatty Memorial Lecture must be held while classes are in session, open to the public, and well advertised.
