“One More Thought…” Lecture Series 

The Emeriti Faculty Association in partnership with the Provost Office and the Academic Deans invited students, faculty and staff to nominate a faculty member to present their thoughts, advice and insights about academic life during the inaugural “One More Thought…” lecture series. Emeritus Professor Stephen Hansen was chosen and was to deliver his lecture in early Fall 2020. Due to the pandemic, the date was changed to Spring Semester 2021. Unfortunately, since the University is still under quarantine conditions, the lecture will be further delayed and is now planned for Fall 2021.
