Sweeney Family Lecture Series

The annual Sweeney Family Lecture is made possible by a generous gift endowment from the John and Barbara Sweeney Family. Past chair of the Saint Xavier University Board of Trustees, John P. Sweeney wished to enhance the efforts to bring notable speakers to SXU for substantive, lively, even "edgy" presentations and discussions on topics that would range across the liberal arts and sciences, provoke thought, deepen the educational experience of students, and engage both members of the University community and members of the general public.
