Meet Our 2017-2018 Visiting Scholars

ΦBK’s Visiting Scholars travel to more than 100 colleges and universities each year, spending two days on campus and taking part in the academic life of the institution. On each campus, they meet with students, participate in class discussions, and give a free lecture open to the general public.
