About the Series...

The Sacerdote Great Names Series brings to campus national and international leaders in government, business, science and the arts. Established in 1996, the series provides Hamilton students, professors and staff members, as well as the broader community, with opportunities to interact with some of the world's most renowned individuals through free, public lectures and, in many cases, intimate classroom discussions. The series is made possible by a significant gift from Peter and Bonnie Sacerdote and their son Alex Sacerdote '94, and is named in their honor.
