Fall 2022 Honors Faculty Fellows Lecture Series

In Fall 2022, five Honors College faculty fellows presented lectures that gave Honors students and the community a sample of what their innovative, interdisciplinary courses in 2022-2023 year were all about. 

The 2022-2023 Honors College Faculty Fellows are teaching courses that cover topics such as ethical dilemmas in transplant surgery, understanding the metaverse, justice in law and literature, science’s societal limitations and promises and information literacy through film. 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. 

See links to video recordings for each lecture below.
