Dean's Research Seminar Series

Spring 2024

The Dean's Research Seminar Series is a monthly presentation to celebrate the scholarship, research and creative work of those faculty who enjoyed research leave during the previous academic year. These seminars typically consist of two brief presentations from faculty colleagues designed for a general audience, followed by a discussion and refreshments.
