School of Arts and Sciences Announces New Lecture Series, “Faculty Explorations”

falseThe Felician University School of Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce a new lecture series titled, “Faculty Explorations.” This is a series that draws its impetus from the uncertainty of our times,  students' concerns and issues in our world that affect them. This series will draw from the knowledge, experience and expertise of the Felician faculty to shed light on these issues and to model ways of thinking globally and critically in response to uncertainty and world events.

This is the first in a series. Future topics may include such issues as Restorative Justice and Criminal Justice Reform.

Suggestions from the Felician community for future Faculty Explorations topics are welcome.

The first installment, “How Do We Live in an Age of Uncertainty? Perspectives on Terror” will be presented in two parts.
