Olivet College has announced the Dean’s Scholars Series events for the fall 2016 semester.
The DSS has become a tradition of The University of Olivet that brings the community together around a specific topic of interest. Students and faculty members are invited by Maria Davis, Ph.D., provost and dean of the college, to present their peer-reviewed or other high-quality scholarly work to the college and community. All events are free and open to the public.
“The Dean’s Scholars Series provides an excellent opportunity for faculty and students alike to share their intellectual work,” said Provost and Dean Maria Davis. “In this way they can demonstrate their scholarship, celebrate each other’s accomplishments and build professional relationships with one another around topics of mutual interest.”
