The J. Jobe and Marguerite Jacqmin Soffa Lecture

The Soffa lecture supports regular lectures on contemporary issues of global significance. Marguerite Jacqmin Soffa (‘46 BA L&S) established this fund to support an annual public lecture on a contemporary issue of global significance by a distinguished woman in international public life. For more than a decade this fund has brought renowned women from across the globe to lecture and meet with classes. Holders of the lectureship have included well-known “grassroots” leaders in the struggle for human rights and international understanding.
