The Clary Seminar Series

The Clary Seminar Series is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas within and across Coles College disciplines. Each semester, we invite speakers from top research institutions and within Coles College to give presentations on their ongoing and most recently completed research projects.

The Seminar Series provides the faculty an excellent opportunity to directly interact with leaders in their research areas, get valuable feedback on their ongoing work from peers and also creates possibilities for high impact collaboration.

All seminars will be from 1:00-2:30 pm in Burruss Building, Room 269, unless otherwise notified. Take a look at our Campus Map for parking instructions and finding your way to our business building.
