Rome Walking Tours Lecture Series:
Rome, the Core and the Disciplines 

The Rome Lecture Series is meant to highlight the process of liberal learning, to help prepare students for Rome, to continue the dialog with those who have been returned, and to further extend the dialog among those who may not participate in the Rome Program.
