    the proposed lecture will contribute to the general intellectual and or cultural life of the university community Highly technical lectures or lectures appealing to a restricted audience should be supported by grants from institutional or research funds Address requests for such lectures to the dean of the appropriate college or school rather than to the Lectures Committee The committee will entertain requests for lectures that are of an unusual nature such as those given in a language other than English only if the application includes adequate justification B STATURE OF LECTURERS The Lectures Committee supports bringing speakers of proven distinction to the UW Madison campus Requests for support must include evidence written in English of the lecturer s qualifications and professional standing Such evidence should state the lecturer s educational background and cite specific examples of authored publications exhibitions films awards received or other pertinent works or achievements This may take the form of an abbreviated curriculum vitae a resume a biographical sketch an entry from Who s Who or any similar documentation in which the proposed lecturer s professional credentials are readily apparent Evidence of the proposed lecturer s qualifications and professional standing may not exceed 2 pages in length The committee believes that a concise document comparable to those submitted to external funding agencies should communicate this information adequately The proposed lecturer s full c v will not be accepted for review Specific exclusions The committee does not provide funds for lecturers however distinguished who lecture under contract for commercial agencies or who earn their living as professional lecturers Return to the TOP V ABOUT LECTURE SCHEDULING A DATES HOURS AND LOCATIONS Sponsoring units should schedule lectures so as to maximize attendance by the diverse university community especially undergraduates as well as by the public audience The committee will accept applications for lectures scheduled to occur during the fall and spring semesters as well as during the eight week DHH summer session When selecting a lecture date give careful consideration to cycles in the university s academic calendar Lectures proposed during vacations near vacations e g Thanksgiving week the Friday before Easter during or near examination periods or on a major religious holiday will not be approved without compelling justification The lecture must be held at a location on or immediately adjacent to the campus one that is easily accessible to the general student audience and is wheelchair accessible The lecture must be open to the public and without charge Schedule the lecture for a time when student attendance is possible and likely usually 12 00 noon or later A proposed lecture time before 12 00 noon requires compelling justification Lectures proposed on Friday evenings or on weekends generally will not be approved Similarly a lecture proposed for the same time as another committee supported lecture will not be approved unless the scheduling conflict is absolutely unavoidable In a past analysis of attendance data for lectures we found that early afternoon between 1 00 p m and 3 00 p m and early evening between 5 00 p m and 7 00 p m lecture times were more likely than other times during the day to attract audience participants We also found that lectures on Tuesdays Thursdays and Fridays tended to attract larger audiences than lectures on Mondays and Wednesdays B IF CHANGES ARE NECESSARY If the date time and or location of a lecture must be changed from what is submitted on the Support Request Form a written request and justification for the change must be submitted to the chair of the Lectures Committee Prior authorization for changes is required If prior authorization is not obtained the Lectures Committee may withdraw its support of the lecture and the sponsoring units will bear the full financial responsibility for its costs If it becomes necessary to change the date of an approved lecture the new date must fall within the same academic year for which the lecture was approved If this is not possible the lecture request will be considered null and void Should the sponsoring unit still desire support for the lecture the unit will need to submit a new request Return to the TOP IV ABOUT THE BUDGET A FUNDING The Lectures Committee expects that applicants will seek funding from other sources before requesting committee support The committee is able to maximize the number of lectures it supports each year because of commitments by the sponsoring units to provide partial financial support for a lecture Thus the committee is more favorable to funding requests that present evidence of such support In addition to the application to the Lectures Committee it is expected that applicants will seek funding from event co sponsors and other funding sources This allows the committee to maximize the number of lectures supported each year The financial support the committee provides is made possible by grants from general university funds the Anonymous Fund the Knapp Bequest the Meiklejohn Fund and the Fitch Fund Although the level of funding from these sources has been steady in recent years it is subject to change annually Consequently financial support of lectures is always contingent upon the committee s annual budget In recent years the committee has provided an average of 900 to 1 000 per lecture This figure includes honorarium travel and per diem expenses B HONORARIUM The committee uses a variable honorarium system for recognizing lecturers An applicant may request an honorarium of 400 or 600 Higher honoraria may be considered for exceptional lecturers 3 When requesting support for a lecture the applicant must specify the honorarium level requested If the requested honorarium is above the 600 level the applicant must justify the level requested as described below Note that the sponsoring units may use other funds to supplement the honorarium requested from the Lectures Committee Evaluation criteria and expectations identified below should guide the applicant s selection of an honorarium These serve as the bases of the committee s evaluation of the appropriateness of the
