» Departmental Lecture Series

The Department of Religious Studies oversees four endowments that enrich the Religious Studies curriculum at Chapman University and provide students with opportunities to interact with distinguished national and international scholars of religion.

Griset Visiting Chair in Bible and Christian Tradition and Griset Lectureship

Both the Griset Chair in Bible and Christian Tradition (the first endowed chair at Chapman University) and the separate Griset Lectureship focusing on Christianity and ethics were established in 1984 in the name of Belle Griset, whose son Francis Griset served as a Chapman Trustee for many years.  Both endowments include teaching responsibilities as well as the delivering of a public lecture.
