GSSI guest lectures will include a presentation on one of the selected topics below and an interactive Q&A. If you’d like to participate, submit your request as soon as possible, as spots are limited to about 10-12 slots per semester.

Please note, this form is for fall 2023 and spring 2024 submissions. In order to ensure we’re able to extend the opportunity for a variety of universities, there is a two-semester maximum when requesting guest lecturers. If you have participated in the past, you are still welcome to submit a request for these upcoming semesters.
