Department Colloquium

The Department of Mathematics sponsors a colloquium that takes place approximately every two weeks throughout the school year. Visiting scholars and department faculty present their current directions of study to interested faculty and students. Each event is also open to the public. Most talks are from 12:15–1:05 on a Monday through Thursday.  Contact Christopher Hanusa if you would like to speak or if you would like to be added to the colloquium mailing list.
