Fostering Campus-wide Involvement

While speakers are at ISTS and on campus, every effort will be made to create opportunities for interested students, faculty, and researchers to meet and/or converse with invited guests regarding their areas of expertise. Additional plans include the possibility of adding panel discussions, roundtables, or point-counterpoint sessions to the speaker series format.
