Frontiers of Knowledge
The Frontiers of Knowledge Program encompasses FRONTIER FORUM and TRAIL BLAZERS, two distinct lecture series that recognize experts in our midst and those spearheading research and change around the globe on relevant and timely topics. It is a crucial way to connect the college and the community. Our hope is that these events will provide a sense of optimism and stability in an ever-changing world.
Please check back Summer 2021 for more information on upcoming Frontiers of Knowledge events. Speakers for the 2021-2022 academic year will be added as they are confirmed.
