In an effort to increase the visibility of our discipline at DSU and within the wider Southern Utah community, the History Program sponsors an annual History Distinguished Lecture. Once a year, we bring a Distinguished Lecturer -- an academic historian with a substantial record of achievement and innovation in the discipline -- to campus; s/he delivers a lecture on campus during the Spring semester and also meets with a group of history students during his/her visit.
