Stockton University presents an annual lecture series in honor of Professor Paul Lyons. This series brings to Stockton leading regional, national, and international scholars in American Studies. Intended for general audiences, the lectures draw on the scholars from the Humanities and the Social Sciences, and appeal to students in a wide range of undergraduate programs (History, Literature, Philosophy, Sociology/Anthropology, Political Science, Economics) as well as graduate ones (MAED, MAHG, and American Studies).
The assistance of the School of Arts and Humanities, the Interdisciplinary Center for Hellenic Studies and the generosity of the speakers make the Classical Humanities lecture series possible. Since the fall of 1972 the Classical Humanities Society of South Jersey has actively engaged a myriad of guests and topics at Stockton University.
The Hughes Center serves as a catalyst for research on public policy and economic issues facing southern New Jersey. The Center provides a forum for public discussion of policy issues to engage citizens and policy makers, frame policy issues in a manner that encourages broader civic engagement, and strengthen the voice of southern New Jersey in public debate.
