The Signature Series and the Enrichment Series are held on alternating years.
The Signature Series brings an artist, lecturer or presentation of national stature to campus to provide a performance or event. The presenters also teach classes and interact with students and faculty during their visit.
The 2007 series features a lecture and exhibit by acclaimed 9/11 photographer Joel Meyerowitz and the performance of the musical piece On the Transmigration of Souls by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Adams.
Past guests include movie director Gus Van Sant and jazz musicians Branford and Ellis Marsalis.
The Enrichment Series brings distinguished guests to campus several times a year to conduct workshops, seminars or other activities.
