Building on the success of the Distinguished Visiting Scholars program, which has been bringing scholars to campus since 1998, the Office of the Provost is piloting a Distinguished Visiting Scholars program for women in underrepresented fields.
The program brings to campus women working in underrepresented fields who have distinguished themselves as leaders and innovators in the academy, in business or in fields of endeavor. As in the established Distinguished Visiting Scholars program, women in the pilot program will interact with faculty and students to participate in the intellectual life of the Washington University campus.
Goals of the Pilot Program
We anticipate that this pilot expansion of the Distinguished Visiting Scholars program will not only allow our community to learn from accomplished women but will also help the university identify female scholars from underrepresented fields who might become lasting members of the WashU community.
To inquire about visits or the pilot program, contact Vice Provost Adrienne Davis.
