Rudin Lecture

The Jack and Lewis Rudin Distinguished Visiting Scholars Program was established at Marymount Manhattan College in 2000 through a grant from The Rudin Foundation, Inc. 

Both Jack Rudin and the late Lewis Rudin have been well known throughout New York for the extraordinary contributions they have made to enhance the quality of living and working in New York City, and for their generous support of education, health, the arts and other civic, religious and cultural causes. Marymount Manhattan is honored to be the recipient of this special grant. This lecture builds upon the College’s commitment to academic excellence and its distinctive undergraduate programs in the liberal arts.
