The Ball State University Provost's Lecture Series collection provides access to video recordings and published text of lectures given as part of Ball State University's Provost's Lecture Series.
The series, which began in 1985, brought scholars and public figures of national and global significance to Ball State University to deliver lectures for the benefit of both students and faculty. Introduced by James V. Koch, then Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, the series was coordinated by John Koumoulides, Professor of History.
Lectures given during the 1987-1988 and 1988-1989 academic years were published in a two-volume series entitled Perspectives on Culture and Society. These lectures have also been made available individually in this collection. Assorted lectures from other years were recorded to video and these recordings are available in this collection as well. Video recordings currently available in the collection range in date from 1991 to 2005.
