Use this form for single lectures, which are to be sponsored by the Program in Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies and/or Chellis House, the women’s resource center.

We avoid cosponsoring conflicting events. Before submitting a proposal, please check the College Events Calendar (

When choosing a lecture date, please keep in mind regularly scheduled College events such as monthly faculty meetings, midterm recess, and winter carnival. Remember, too, that accommodations can be difficult to secure on Columbus Day weekend, Fall Family Weekend, and at other times when the College is hosting major events. Dates that tend to be crowded for GSFS/Chellis House: The Gensler Family Symposium on Feminism in a Global Context is normally hosted in mid-April; February is Black History Month; November 25-December 10 is the 16 days of activism to end gender-based violence; March is Women’s History Month.

Honoraria have mostly ranged between $750 and $1000. Honoraria may vary if the visitor also visits a class, or renders other services.
