Joy Goodwin Lecture Series

The Joy Goodwin Lecture Series was established in 1984 by donor Joy Goodwin, to bring in visiting scholars in support of the research and teaching interests of the faculty and students of the College of Veterinary Medicine.  To date, this endowed program has sponsored over 130 seminars covering a wide-range of topics. The speakers are chosen because of their documented leadership in a particular discipline of interest to the college.
