Fall 2021 Honors Faculty Fellows Lecture Series

This fall, eight Honors College faculty fellows will present lectures that give Honors students and the community a sample of what their innovative, interdisciplinary courses this year are all about. 

This year’s Honors College Faculty Fellows are teaching courses that will allow students to make new connections and look beyond the common narrative. The Honors College Faculty Fellows program gives faculty the opportunity to design new Honors College courses that also allow students to fulfill General Education Foundations course requirements.

All lectures start at 6 p.m. and are open to the public. Register here to receive the Zoom link.
