Buchanan Lectures

The Buchanan Lecture was established to honor UW President Tom Buchanan, who served the university from
2005-2013. The lecture is delivered by one of UW’s most accomplished retiring faculty members and offers the
graduating class, their families, and the university community the opportunity to hear a distinguished retired UW
professor distill a life of inquiry, reflection, and service into important guidance for successive generations.
