History of Luther Lecture

The Luther Lecture was established with the purpose of making a distinctive and stimulating contribution to the life of the University and the general community. Annually a distinguished scholar or leader of note is invited to present an address on a subject of significance. Although the speakers have included such outstanding minds as Northrop Frye, Helen Caldicott, John Ralston Saul, and Margaret Somerville, the lectures are aimed at a general audience, and feature topics of interest to communities in Saskatchewan and beyond. In this way, Luther College, University Campus, aims to express more fully its objective to encourage wise thinking and constructive action in the service of humanity.

The Luther Lecture is provided in part through a generous grant from the members of Faith Life Financial and the James Kurtz Memorial Trust Fund.
