Storrs Campus
Konover Auditorium

The Provost’s Distinguished Speaker Series fosters intellectual, professional, and personal growth and collegiality among the University of Connecticut community. This series provides an opportunity for our most recently-inducted Board of Trustees Distinguished Professors and Endowed Chairs to share advances in their expertise and engage thought-provoking discussions. Dr. Lynch's work concerns truth, democracy, public discourse and the ethics of technology. The recipient of the Medal for Research Excellence from the University of Connecticut’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and grants from the Bogliasco Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities, he is currently the PI of Humility & Conviction in Public Life, a $7 million project aimed at understanding and encouraging meaningful public discourse funded by the John Templeton Foundation and UConn.
