The Lindsay Young Distinguished Visiting Senior Scholar Program was created by the Marco Steering Committee in 2015, and Marco welcomed its inaugural Lindsay Young Visiting Scholar, James Palmer of St. Andrews, to campus in March of 2016. Designed to bring a distinguished scholar to campus for an extended visit of one to three weeks, this program is intended to enrich both faculty research and graduate/undergraduate education on campus. Candidates are nominated by Marco faculty members. During their residency, the Lindsay Young Visiting Scholar gives at least one public lecture, leads a seminar-style research colloquium, collaborates with Marco faculty, and attends at least one graduate class.
