We proudly welcome various writers, justices, and artists to take up short-term residency at the College.
These residencies allow special guests to organize public talks, fireside chats, and events such as book launches. No matter the form of their stay, our visiting scholars and visionaries come into the College with open minds and leave inspired by interdisciplinary experiences.
