Roatch Global Lecture Series on Social Policy and Practice is an annual event that hosts an internationally known scholar to lecture on a topic of global reach and social significance to the Arizona community. The John F. and Mary Roatch Endowment supports the global lecture series and, in conjunction with other partners, occasionally sponsors additional events. The lectures are free to the public and a copy of previous lectures can be viewed through this Web site or selected publications are available at the ASU Hayden Library.
