2019 Seminar Series


The Research Seminar Series was established to meet the need for a time and place for faculty and staff to exchange research information. The series is intended to build community and collegiality by setting the venue for you to communicate to others just what you do in your work.

It's casual and fun: A great way to relax, meet faculty from various disciplines.

Special thanks goes out to all those who presented and to all those who attended. We would also like to thank Dr. Linda Spatz, who acts as the faculty coordinator for this series. Hope you'll join us!
