The Thought Leader Seminar Series engages the most distinguished scholars and thought leaders: those who have pioneered and significantly influenced a research area. During the visit, the scholars will deliver a talk on how they started their research program and how it has evolved over the years, as well as the most important and intriguing questions that they are currently studying or believe need to be studied. A variety of activities are included in each visit, including a working lunch with junior faculty and doctoral students, dinner/social time with our full faculty, discussions about publishing in major journals and managing the process, individual meetings with faculty, and exploration of nearby attractions such as state parks.
