Science Seminars (Fall 2015-Spring 2016)
The Natural and Behavioral Sciences (NBS) seminar series brings scientists to campus to present their original research. The goal is not only to expose our students to a broad range of cutting-edge scientific work and technology but also to connect them with scientists from academic, government and industrial sectors. The NBS Division is made up of many departments including Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Computer Science, Physics and Engineering, and Psychology, and speakers are encouraged to make their presentations accessible to a broad scientific audience. The public is also welcome.
The Pascal Society hosts interdisciplinary speakers who present on issues of science and faith. Pascal Society speakers may present at one of the below dates or, more typically, arrangements are made for an evening lecture.
