Professorial Lecture Series

As South Australia’s only research-intensive institution, our professors are some of the best minds in the world. We welcome you to campus for the Professorial Lecture series where we will  introduce new members of the professoriate to the wider university community.

The lectures are held on the last Monday of the month. They are free, open to staff, students and the public. There will be an opportunity for networking with the professor over refreshments following the lecture each month.
