Crom Visiting Philosopher


Sponsored by the department of philosophy and religious studies, the Crom program is a series which brings distinguished and influential philosophers to campus for two days of talks, classroom visits, and lectures. It is named in honor of Scott Crom, a longtime and legendary philosophy professor at Beloit College who died in 2013.

The series, established in 2010, is made possible by gifts from John Selzer’77 and Roy J. Schneiderman’77.
