2013-2014 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 symposia are open to all and are announced each week to the campus. The graduate student seminar class attends the series and many students also make presentations to the school as part of the series. The school also invites distinguished alumni to make presentations as part of the series.

Refreshments are normally available a half hour before the seminar in Sloan 243.
