Saint Martin's University Last Lecture Series

The Last Lecture connects students and faculty at Saint Martin’s University in an informal setting which encourages reflection on the everyday convictions, actions, and challenges of a life journey.

The concept of a Last Lecture became nationally recognized in 2007 when Dr. Randy Pausch gave his Last Lecture at Carnegie Mellon University. Pausch conceived of the lecture after he learned the he had terminal cancer. Pausch’s lecture has been viewed by millions since and is incorporated into school curriculums worldwide.
