Inaugural Lectures

An Inaugural Lecture is a significant event in an academic staff member's career. Inaugural Lectures provide newly appointed Professors with the opportunity to showcase their research to the College community and members of the public. At Trinity College, Inaugural Lectures are a ceremonial occasion, which is why academic robes are worn by the Inaugural Professor and the rest of the platform party.
