Colloquia, Lectures & Special Seminars

During Fall and Spring semesters the Department holds an hour-long colloquium at 3:00 p.m. every Friday in Room 224 Mathematical and Microbiological Sciences unless otherwise stated below. Each colloquium is preceded by a Meet-and-Greet with refreshments at 2:30 p.m. in Room 222 Mathematical and Microbiological Sciences. Periodically, the department will host special seminars and talks by visiting scholars and researchers.

Colloquium Speakers and Visiting Scholars: Upon your arrival on-campus please stop by the Department Office in 120 Mathematical and Microbiological Sciences to complete the paperwork necessary for your expense reimbursement. Your host can provide additional information about necessary documentation.
