Millennial Lecture Series
The Class of 2000 debuted the Millennial Lectures at Reunions in 2006, with the intent of bringing discussion of important, current issues to the events calendar. The Series was awarded the Alumni Council Committee on Reunions Award for Innovation in 2011.
Lectures normally take place the Saturday morning of Reunions weekend. Lectures are open to all and often feature Princeton faculty or other notable speakers.
