The Hopkins Colloquium was established in 1998 to honor Theodore L. Hopkins, professor emeritus of entomology, for his many contributions to the science of entomology. The award supports the visit of a distinguished scientist working in an area of current importance and interest, and who will bring new and important research in entomological science to the department and university.
