TODAY! “Success in a Changing World: How a Liberal Arts Education Prepares You for the 21st Century”

Biology Majors and Others:


I would like to bring your attention to the College Arts and Sciences Panel this afternoon for the College Luminaries series (November 10, 4:00-5:30pm, Frangipani Room, IMU). The Luminaries are former IU alumnists who have had remarkable careers and who graduated from the College of Arts and Sciences. This event is open to the public


See the press release below:


One of these panelists is Professor Scott Hultgren who is from Washington University School of Medicine and graduated with a Microbiology degree from IU in 1981. He is an expert on pathogenic bacteria, particularly how they impact women’s health (he is founding and current Director of the Center for Women’s Infectious Disease Research at Wash U).


The other panelists have fascinating personal stories as well (John Ponce, Paul Laine; Deputy Spokeswoman for the US State Department Marie Harf was forced to postpone her visit to IU due to diplomatic duties in Iran, but will visit in February).


The topic for the panel discussion today is:


“Success in a Changing World: How a Liberal Arts Education Prepares You for the 21st Century”


Anyone who has wondered why there is such a breadth of course requirements for degrees in the College should appreciate this discussion. You may also wonder how this breadth helps prepare you for your future? The panelists will give their views and experience relevant to this topic.


I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to learn from and connect with former IU College alumnists. This event is meant for you.


Clay Fuqua, Biology Chair
