Faculty Lecture Series

Faculty Lecture Science

Stimulate the mind and spirit by attending these fascinating 20-minute presentations.


The 2015-16 Faculty Lecture Series gives UCC’s faculty members an opportunity outside of the classroom to share their passion and do what they do best: inspire, question, and motivate thought about the subjects they have dedicated their lives to researching and teaching. This event is open to the entire community. Join us for this series of free, twice-a-month lectures showcasing the ideas and possibilities being explored by our top-notch faculty.
