The Last Lecture was created in 1999 and, after a period of dormancy, resurrected by the honors program in 2013.
The Last Lecture is a tradition at Merrimack and many other colleges and universities that allows a faculty member to speak on any subject as if it were his or her final class.
Director, Media Instructional Services
Kevin Salemme began his college career as an electrical engineering major at Merrimack in 1979, but soon decided to follow his heart and pursue a career in photography. He transferred to the Art Institute of Boston, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography in 1982.
After working for a time as a commercial photographer, Salemme joined Merrimack in 1984 as director of media instructional services. Today, he also serves as an adjunct professor of photography in the School of Liberal Arts.
In addition to a B.F.A., Salemme holds a bachelor’s degree in fine arts and philosophy from Merrimack College and a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies in studio arts, film and photography from Harvard University.
He has exhibited his photography throughout New England as well as in France and Switzerland.
