Delta Gamma Foundation Lectureships in Values and Ethics

In celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary, Dr. Paul Martin honored his wife, Dorothy “Dotty” Garrett Martin, Eta-Akron, by establishing the Delta Gamma Lectureships in Values and Ethics. The Dorothy Garrett Martin challenge was started with three $50,000 grants and a vision “to establish a venue on college campuses where values and ethics could be discussed with an open format.”

Today Lectureships are held on 20 campuses with an additional Lectureship hosted at Convention. Although each Lectureship has its own style and personality, the underlying theme of values and ethics is constant. Speakers range from well-known celebrities, political figures and entrepreneurs to those unsung heroes who have overcome adversities or established organizations that further the Delta Gamma motto to do good. A list of past speakers and program history can be found here.
