Dorothy Day Lecture Series
"The Dorothy Day Lecture Series, established in the spring 2013, is a "living legacy" honoring members of the Emmanuel College Class of 1971. This endowed lecture series is held annually each April a topic that reflects the interplay between sociology, history, economics and political action and the connections between the late '60s/early '70s and the present. The series is named after Dorothy Day, the woman who co-founded the Catholic Workers Movement in 1933.
The inaugural lecture held in April 2013, included a panel of distinguished Emmanuel alumnae from the early 1970s that revisited the realities of life for students at the College during that turbulent era, as well as how an Emmanuel education affected their futures, in a discussion on "Changing Times, Changing Lives."
