Attend the Donald Bouma lectures
The Donald Bouma Lecture Series is regularly offered by Calvin College's sociology department to provide a context for discussion of contemporary social issues.
Donald H. Bouma was a graduate of the college and taught at Calvin from 1946 to 1960. He was instrumental in establishing the Calvin sociology department and also served as the new department's chair.
Today Calvin continues to honor his contributions to the college with the Donald Bouma Lecture Series, sponsored by the sociology and social work department. The lecture series honors the memory of a man who made a mark at Calvin during his 14-year tenure and who made a mark in his work apart from his alma mater.
