|President Kupchella begins Faculty Lecture Series|
"Chickens" -- that's the title of the first talk in the 2007-08 University Faculty Lecture Series. President Charles Kupchella will give the opening talk Thursday, Oct. 18, at the North Dakota Museum of Art. A receptions starts at 4 p.m. and the lecture begins at 4:30 p.m. In honor of the 125th anniversary of the founding of the University and the 10th anniversary of the re-establishment of the lecture series at UND, the committee of Chester Fritz Professors coordinating the University Faculty Lecture Series invited the deans of colleges to speak on their research. This occasion will allow the deans to reflect on the important role that their scholarly work plays not only in their career path but in their work on campus today. And, again to break precedent a little, the committee is commemorating President Kupchella’s tenure at UND by inviting him to give the opening lecture.
Chandice Covington, dean of the College of Nursing, will present the second lecture in the series Thursday, Nov. 8. Her topic is "Interdisciplinary Research: A Modern Paradigm for Nursing Science." Subsequent lectures will be given in the spring and next fall, starting Jan. 17 with Paul LeBel, dean of the College of Law.
Please save the dates of Feb. 14, March 13 and April 10.
