Faculty on the Road

The Edith Ingalls Vignos '45 Faculty on the Road Program brings together alumni and faculty to re-create a Sarah Lawrence seminar. Members of our renowned faculty take their academic passions to cities across the country, and ask you to come prepared to discuss questions pertinent to their topics. It's not quite the same as sitting around a table in Dudley Lawrence Living Room, but you will find the same challenging give-and-take that marked your Sarah Lawrence experience.

The Sarah Lawrence Faculty on the Road Program was created through the generosity of Edith Ingalls Vignos ’45 and endowed by her family's foundation. These gifts were made to ensure continued connection between the College's faculty and alumni.

Below is a list of the dates, locations and faculty members that will be featured in the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 Faculty on the Road schedule. More information will become available as the event approaches. If you would like to host a future seminar, please e-mail alum@sarahlawrence.edu.
