About the Program
The late Cecil H. and Ida Green endowed the program in 1969 with the goal of bringing scholars and artists of national and international stature to campus for short residencies to:
Stimulate new ideas
Enrich intellectual exchange
Nurture relations with surrounding communities
The program is shared by almost every college and department on campus and provides new ideas and stimulation for faculty, staff and students. Each department within a school has the opportunity to invite a Green Chair every three years.
