This year’s theme at Augustana is our Centenary: join our professors in talks about our anniversary and their research areas.

The Augustana Research Committee is proud to announce the schedule for its first Faculty Colloquium Series. Talks/Presentations in the Series will occur on the last Monday of September to October and January to March during the 12:30 to 2:05 p.m. time slot. Generally, two talks/presentations are slated for each Monday, each taking about 30 minutes followed by about 10 minutes for questions, with a 5 or 10 minute break between (so the second one will generally start at about 1:20 p.m. if you can only make it to that one).

All talks/presentations will be in the bright new classroom, C101. Refreshments will be served. Please mark these events on your calendar. Download the PDF of this announcement!
