  •  Gerald and Sallly DeNardo Lectureship

    The Gerald and Sally DeNardo Lectureship was established through an endowment created and funded by Gerald and Sally DeNardo. Their vision is for the Lectureship to be the major and most effective presentation in the health sciences at Santa Clara. The breadth of the speaker will also position the lectureship to be one of the most important events for the Santa Clara University community as a whole, and include a public lecture, a student lecture, and other interactive campus events.

    Boasting dynamic and eminent speakers inspired by purpose, the Lectureship brings out the best of a Jesuit education, reflecting Santa Clara’s institutional commitment to the pursuit of informed ethical discourse across the University. Complementing the Lectureship is Health & Science Horizons, a series of interdisciplinary programs aimed at informing and enriching an intellectual dialogue across campus and in our community.
