McGee Public Policy Lecture Series


Our Spring McGee lecture, featuring Peter K. Schott, has been CANCELLED.

We hope to reschedule for next year.


The McGee Lecture Fund was established in 1996 by Mr. William K. McGee, Jr. to support a lecture series intended to bring outstanding economists to campus in the Department of Economics at the College of Arts and Science.  The lectures are open to the public, as well as to the Vanderbilt community.
