Presidential Events Series

The 2013–2014 Presidential Events Series, The Human Experience: An Odyssey, emphasizes the philosophy that Eckerd’s faculty imparts to first-year students, “Think critically about the world around you and your place in this world.” Through speaker presentations and campus initiatives, the series will reflect ideas and concepts that inspire minds to move beyond illusive walls and barriers, compel an openness to new ways of looking at the world, and ignite an intellectual journey that transitions to a lifelong quest and adventure.

Eckerd College is pleased to present lectures and presentations as a service to the community! All events at Eckerd College are free and open to the public unless otherwise indicated.


This year’s series is inspired by Human Experience, a two-course sequence and the cornerstone of the first-year academic program at Eckerd College. This introduction to Eckerd’s General Education curriculum provides students with a foundation in the liberal arts, an opportunity to examine the liberal arts more deeply, and a platform to awaken their scholarly interests.

In addition to Eckerd’s focus on the human experience, the 2013–2014 Presidential Events Series shines a spotlight on The Arts at Eckerd College by featuring the talent and creativity of Eckerd’s campus community as well as artists from around the state of Florida.
