President’s Lecture Series
About the President's Lecture Series
Each year, Pratt Institute invites preeminent individuals in the world of art, design, and architecture to participate in the Pratt President's Lecture Series, to share the lessons of their life's work with students, faculty, alumni, friends, and the local community. Since joining Pratt Institute as president in 1993, Dr. Thomas F. Schutte has hosted over 40 President's Lecturers, filling auditoriums across our Brooklyn campus with eager ears and growing minds that engage in stimulating Q&A sessions immediately after presentations.
