On November 10, 2010 Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Herbert Gintis visited Spelman College to present "Evolution and Morality." The visit was sponsored by the Epsilon of Georgia chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.
The Visiting Scholar Program makes available every year a dozen or so distinguished scholars. The men and women participating during 2010-2011 will visit 80 colleges and universities, spending two days at each one, meeting informally with students and faculty members, taking part in classroom discussions, and giving a public lecture open to the entire academic community. The visits are designed primarily for undergraduate participation.
The purpose of the program is to contribute to the intellectual life of the campus by making possible an exchange of ideas between the Visiting Scholars and the resident faculty and students. A total of 4,784 visits have been made by the 577 Visiting Scholars who have taken part in the program during the past 54 years.
