The Hilldale Lecture Series is supported by the university's Hilldale Fund and sponsored by the executive committees of the four faculty divisions: the Arts & Humanities Divisional Committee, Biological Sciences Divisional Committee, Physical Sciences Divisional Committee and Social Studies Divisional Committee.
Through these lectures, each division presents to the university community distinguished thinkers whose contributions to contemporary culture and science have received international recognition and acclaim. All lectures are free and open to the public.
A lecturer's presence on campus provides a special opportunity for faculty, staff and students to engage around topics of mutual interest. Each lecturer is invited to deliver a public talk, which is followed by a hosted reception to give attendees access to the speaker. Smaller and more focused interactions are also scheduled for selected faculty and students.
Created in 1962 through a gift to the board of regents through the University of Wisconsin Foundation, the Hilldale Fund is dedicated to the support of projects that advance scholarly activity at UW-Madison. The fund has benefitted over the years from income realized from the operation of the Hilldale Shopping Center, which was constructed on university-owned land, and more recently from proceeds from the sale of that real estate.
