SMC Associates & University Press Lectures
The Santa Monica College Associates is a community-based support group that brings outstanding speakers, performers, and special events to SMC to enhance student excellence. Associates members receive invitations to special activities and advance notice of lectures by world-class guest speakers. Yearly membership of $100 or more is entirely tax-deductible. For details, please visit the SMC Associates website (www.smc.edu/associates).
The Spring 2014 SMC Associates lecture is presented in collaboration with the University of California Press, one of the largest, most distinguished, and most adventurous nonprofit publishers active today, issuing books and journals in the humanities, social sciences, and life sciences. UC Press is supported, in part, by philanthropic gifts from foundations and individuals, who receive a range of benefits in recognition of their generosity.
For information about the lectures, please call (310) 434‑4003.
Seating is strictly on a first-arrival basis.
