The Beloit Residencies

They are Nobel Prize winners, U.S. Poet Laureates, and internationally renowned human rights leaders. They are ground-breaking scholars and artists who champion causes and new ideas. Hailing from around the world and across a broad spectrum of fields, they share one distinction: all are thinkers and doers. And all have joined the Beloit College community for an extended stay as a part of the college’s distinguished residency program.

Each year, Beloit welcomes as many as six such individuals to campus to teach and work with our students, engage with our faculty, perform or present, as well as live on campus.

During their time at the college, members of Beloit’s Class of 2013 met and interacted with almost two dozen luminaries in these diverse fields, including Giles Foden, the award-winning author of The Last King of Scotland, Nobel Prize winner Douglass North, and Ali Allawi, the former Iraqi minister of finance, defense, and trade.
