Civic House: Alvin Gutman Public Scholar Lecture
The Alvin P. Gutman Public Scholar Lecture is an annual lecture hosted by Civic House. Each year we invite an engaged scholar or practitioner (they do not have to be an academic!) to bring new ideas and ask critical questions to help students and the University of Pennsylvania community be more effective in our work for social change.
