Paul C. Wilt Phi Kappa Phi Lectures

Paul C. Wilt The Paul C. Wilt Phi Kappa Phi Lectures are named for Westmont’s longtime Professor of History who retired in 1996. The Fall and Spring Lectures are each presented by a full-time faculty member, are peer- reviewed, and cover engaging contemporary and historical topics from an interdisciplinary perspective. Each lecture has two faculty respondents, one from the lecturer’s department, and one from another department. These two annual events have a great tradition of bringing together faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the local community to think deeply about unique faculty research and commentary.

Dr. Wilt earned his Ph.D. from The American University in Washington, D.C., and inspired thousands of students during his more than 35 years of active teaching to the college. He continues to serve Westmont by overseeing the on-going research and cataloging of the college’s archives, producing wonderful and inspiring narratives about Westmont’s history, since its founding in 1937.
