Meijer Honors College Seminar Series

Please join the Honors College for a series of five faculty seminars this semester.  Invited faculty speakers will present for 30-45 minutes on (a) the theme and arc of their scholarship, (b) an exploration of a recent scholarly product, sabbatical accomplishment, or a newly launched endeavor, or (c) some combination of the two.  A discussion will follow.  Join us for a relaxed, informal opportunity to learn about and contemplate the questions and discoveries made by some of the current Honors Faculty; and to grab a cookie.
