Last Lecture Series

For years, the Honors Program at Mercy College of Detroit had the tradition of a “Last Lecture,” a talk at the end of the school year that challenged or inspired students and faculty in new ways. In 2002, the Last Lecture was reintroduced to University of Detroit Mercy’s Honors Program and in 2014 the Office of Academic Affairs began the tradition of having these lectures presented to the entire University community.

In the Last Lecture given this year, Professor of Religious Studies James B. Tubbs examines what it means to live gratefully. Read the full transcript online.
