About the Munger Lecture:

The Munger Lecture was established by Mary V. Munger, a University of Saint Joseph alumna who earned a B.A. in Mathematics in 1939, then went on to pioneering positions in engineering at Pratt and Whitney. The lecture series invites a guest lecturer to campus to address a topic or issue in contemporary ethics.
