Designed to create a campus-wide conversation, the Helen and Jeff Herbert Family Lecture Series gives first-year students an opportunity to interact with leading members of our faculty—scholars, scientists, and civic leaders who are nationally and internationally renowned. All students, faculty, alumni, staff, and community guests are invited, but the events will be aimed at entering first-year students. The Helen and Jeff Herbert Family Lecture Series is generously brought to UT Austin by the Helen and Jeff Herbert family.
Signature Course students are required to attend at least one of the two large lectures (or watch online) and discuss in class. We suggest that faculty require attendance at one of the smaller linked events as well.
