CPRC Seminars

Spring 2019


RSVP required

Lunchtime Thursdays

Important scheduling changes to note: Our seminars will alternate start time and location in the spring semester. While usually all seminars are held live on the uptown campus with an 11:45am start time, this spring our February 21st and March 21st seminars will be at the School of Social Work with a 12:30pm start time. All other spring seminars will take place uptown in the usual place and time. 

 

 Be on the lookout for individual announcements (with room assignments) as each engagement approaches.
