College of Fellows Distinguished Lecture Series Committee

The following College of Fellows committee is working to create a new speaker series where Fellows would be engaged to go out to underrepresented communities to provide them with an opportunity to hear from an AGU Fellow and get inspired to pursue a career in Earth and space science.

The AGU College of Fellows (COF) has developed the Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS) where AGU Fellows will have an opportunity to give live or virtual lectures to the world-wide earth science community. This speaker series will be supported by the AGU COF. 

Participating in the DLS is an honor bestowed on AGU Fellows. AGU Fellows represent high-profile ambassadors for AGU and the science we represent. This speaker series will provide students, especially those without access to Earth and space scientists, an opportunity to be inspired by and learn from AGU Fellows. The lectures will provide a high-level synthesis of specific fields and will focus on grand challenges and societal impacts.

The program features AGU Fellows spanning mid- and senior-career levels from several countries. The speakers were nominated by leaders from AGU’s sections. For a full list of speakers and information about their lectures, visit the program webpage
