USI Global Salon lecture series


Three lectures by University of Southern Indiana professors will take place Oct. 7, Oct. 28, and Nov. 5 as part of the University’s Global Salon Series. The series is comprised of lectures from USI faculty and community figures that focus on current global issues. The series provides students with a richer understanding of international relations, while giving USI faculty the opportunity to share their current research with the public. 

Dr. Marco Lara Gracia, assistant professor of engineering, will kick off the series at noon Oct. 7, with his presentation on the Panama Canal in University Center East Room 2207.

Dr. Matt Hanka, assitant professor of political science, will give a lecture on 70th anniversary of the United Nations at noon Oct. 28 in University Center East Room 2028. His lecture will focus on how the United Nations has addressed such international issues as global health, poverty, and gender inequality.
