JCU Events Last Lecture

JCU Events

The notion of the Last Lecture bears special significance. It is where Universities of old, scholars – both staff and students – came together to learn about and debate the issues of the day. JCU's annual Last Lecture gives us an opportunity to do the same and to celebrate the end of the traditional teaching year. It also provides an opportunity for a JCU academic to address the community on a topic of their choosing.
