President Rik Warch’s convocation addresses are well-known for their humor, wit, and poignancy. Professor Mike Hittle has said, “Rik’s words clearly energized Lawrence.” In honor of President Warch, and to make his words more accessible, we have begun making audio recordings of his convocations available to be streamed from Lux, Lawrence’s institutional repository.
President Warch’s convocation speeches are the beginning of a larger collection of Presidential addresses that will be collected and made available in Lux.
Interested in a more extensive collection of President Warch’s convocation addresses? The Mudd Library has multiple copies of his book, A matter of style :reflections on liberal education, Lawrence University Matriculation Convocation Addresses, 1979-2003. This book can also be purchased from the campus store, KK’s Apparel and Gifts, in store and online. A Kindle edition of this books is also available.
