Faculty and staff are invited to get involved and explore the creative intersections between liberal arts and professional education. Activities planned for this fall include:

  • Reading groups for faculty and staff, which will explore the themes of “Narratives of Health and Illness” and “Race in America: 1919-2019”
  • Lectures and visiting scholars including: Tom Kirsch MD, MPH, BA’80, as part of Reunion Weekend in September, and Nicole Piemonte, PhD, author and faculty member at the School of Medicine Phoenix campus, in October
