Drescher Lecture Series

Home / News and Events / About Barrett's Events / Lectures / Drescher Lecture Series

The Drescher lecture series is made possible by an endowment from the Mulzet family that began in 2000. The Sol and Esther Drescher Endowed Development Fund was established by Susan Drescher-Mulzet and Mark Mulzet to sponsor research opportunities for Barrett Honors College Faculty Fellows.

These lectures provide opportunities for students to engage with the Barrett faculty, and are open to the public. The following provides a list of the comprehensive subject and research opportunities that resulted as a result of the Mulzet’s generous contribution to higher education.
