Spring 2016 I-Seminar Presentations

The I-Seminar Lunch series brings together seniors from across campus exploring Independent Study research around themes of diversity and inclusion.  The talks are short and informal – with plenty of time for questions from the audience – and include a delicious (free) lunch.
