What is the York Distinguished Lecturer Series?
York Distinguished Lecturer Series was established in 1984
through SHARE by an endowment from Dr. and Mrs. E. T. York,
Jr. Each year, at least one recognized leader is nominated
by faculty and invited to campus. The lecturers are
individuals who have achieved outstanding international
distinction in agriculture or a related discipline. The
scholar is encouraged to spend a number of days on the
University of Florida campus participating with faculty and
students in lectures, workshops, and seminars. The lecturer
also has the opportunity to establish a continuing
relationship with the University as a visiting professor.
The establishment of the
series is in recognition of the proud contribution this
university has made toward the betterment of mankind.
