The Johnson Lecture Series

The Johnson Scholarship Program brings more than just great students to Washington and Lee's historic campus. $15 million of the Johnson gift has been earmarked for the Johnson Lecture and Symposia Series.

The series aims to bring experts and leaders to campus so that our students may learn from their experiences the qualities of honor, leadership and integrity. The Johnson program has co-sponsored lecture series on both "Lincoln for the Ages" and "Leadership and Literature," and its guests have included award-winning author Liza Mundy, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, George Washington expert Richard Brookhiser, and former British Secretary of the Cabinet Lord Robin Butler.
