History of the Carruthers Lecture Series

The Carruthers Lecture Series (CLS) was made possible by the Garrey Carruthers Chair in Honors Endowment established in 1990 to recognize the importance of higher education by giving generous support to improve the process at colleges and universities around the country. The CLS is meant to serve the Honors College, The University of New Mexico, and the city of Albuquerque. Each year the CLS hopes to spark a conversation that lasts far beyond one evening; creating community, strengthening relationships between the Honors College and other UNM departments, and serving as a recruiting tool for the University.

Current Carruthers Chair Ryan Swanson is serving a three year term under which he has dedicated himself to the teaching, research, leadership, and service mission of the Honors College and The University of New Mexico.

This year’s theme (My New Mexico) was selected as a place from which to begin a multifaceted exploration of ideas and questions about New Mexico that can be examined together as a community in the upcoming year of Carruthers programming.
