DLS Nominations


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

WUD Distinguished Lecture Series is accepting nominations for the 2018-19 school year! Click below to be directed to our nominations form!


On our form, we'll ask you to select someone you think would be a great addition to our next year’s line-up! Past speakers are listed below for some ideas on who we look for as speakers. Write a sentence or two on who they are and why they would be a great speaker for DLS. Last, leave your email so we can send you DLS updates!


DLS wants to make nominations more visible to the student body and greater Madison community to continue our mission to bring a diverse array of the best and brightest.

After our nominations period closes on April 24th at 6pm (CST), the DLS committee will vote on the nominations. Speakers are graded on an established set of criteria and receive a cumulative standard grade. This score determines in what order we will pursue speakers until our line-up is full.

Watch out for our fall line-up in early September of 2018!

We encourage all students to join the DLS committee which will resume for the 2018-19 school year on Mondays at 6pm at Memorial Union.
