This includes guest lecturers in our Earl Robinson Memorial Lecture Series; guest speakers at special Booth University College events such as Convocation or during Chapel; as well as world-renowned guest lecturers and speakers on varied topics of interest and importance.
EARL ROBINSON MEMORIAL LECTURE SERIES
The Salvation Army, in partnership with Booth University College, established this special lecture series to mark the many contributions of Colonel Earl Robinson to the establishment of Booth University College and to the larger Salvation Army. The lecture series is designed to stimulate serious reflection and dialogue on the intersection of Christian faith, The Salvation Army mission and theology, and the world. Established with a gift of $100,000, the endowed lecture series will create the opportunity for prominent lecturers to enrich the intellectual life at Booth UC.
