2016-2017 Series

Each semester the school sponsors a speaker series inviting both on campus and outside speakers to present current research activities to the faculty and students in the school and university. The seminars are open to all and are announced each week to the campus. The graduate student seminar class attends the series and students often make presentations to the school as part of the series. The school also invites distinguished alumni to make presentations as part of the series.

With outside speakers, a meet the speaker session with refreshments normally starts at 10:30 ,in ETRL 119.
