Bellarmine hosts two prominent lecture series on its campus, the Wyatt Lecture Series and the Guarnaschelli Lecture Series. These endowed lecture series bring leading arts and humanities speakers to Louisville. Past lectures have featured prominent writers, filmmakers, musicians, pundits, government leaders, historians and journalists. The speakers enlighten Bellarmine students and the campus community but also the city and region at large, as all lectures are free and open to the public.
The lecture series are made possible by grants from two generous families. The Wyatt Lecture Series is funded by Wilson and Anne D. Wyatt. The Guarnaschelli Lecture Series is funded by a grant from Dr. John and Marty Guarnaschelli.
