Each year a faculty committee in Arts & Sciences recommends to the dean the name of a faculty member to deliver the Harrington Lecture. The faculty member must be a teacher and scholar in the best liberal arts tradition "whose achievement warrants recognition by the entire College." The annual lecture must be non-technical, blending insight into liberal education with the faculty member's work as a scholar.
