R. Lynn Sauls Endowed Lecture Series

About the Lecture Series

This lectureship honors the vision, hard work, and dedication of Lynn Sauls, ’52, PhD, former chair of what is now the School of Journalism and Communication at Southern Adventist University. Serving as a professor and leader in the department in the 1980s and ’90s, Sauls helped establish this academic area as it exists today. He strengthened the journalism curriculum and grew the department, connecting with industry professionals and encouraging strong writing skills. Following his retirement in 1996, he stayed connected with his alma mater, serving as an adjunct instructor for a number of years. Now in his 90s, Sauls continues to write, recently publishing two books: It Seems to Me and Seasonal Poems: From May to Christmas and from January to Easter

This annual lecture series celebrates Sauls’ legacy by inviting prominent journalists and top communication professionals to campus to inspire a new generation of truth seekers, storytellers, and influencers.

Details for future events are to be announced.
