Created in 2009, The S.T. Lee Endowed Lecture series offers unique opportunities for students at Washington University to learn about issues of global leadership from today’s world leaders.
The series has been made possible by a generous gift from Dr. Seng Tee Lee, through his establishment of The S.T. Lee Endowed Lecture Fund to the McDonnell International Scholars Academy, and it hosts distinguished guest speakers in business, academia, government, and the nonprofit sector from around the world.
