» Departmental Lecture Series

The Department of Religious Studies oversees three endowed lectureships that enrich the religious studies curriculum at Chapman University and provide students with opportunities to interact with distinguished national and international scholars of religion.


The Griset Lectureship

This lectureship, together with the first endowed chair at Chapman University, was established in 1984 in the name of Belle Griset, whose son Francis Griset served as a Chapman Trustee for many years. The Griset Lectureship enables the Department to invite prominent scholars to campus to teach and deliver public lectures in the area of Christianity and ethics.
