Final Fridays @4pm

Friday, 30 August, 2019 @ 04:00 PM | Cost:Free

What is Final Fridays?

Final Fridays provides an informal opportunity to hear a few Quality Speakers™ from EIU speak about their exciting projects and creative accomplishments in a quick and accessible way: 10 minutes maximum for each speaker. We gather informally starting @ 4pm, and after some time to socialize, we enjoy listening our Quality Speakers™. By 5:30 or so, we’ve wrapped up, but folks are invited to stay to continue the conversation.

Who is speaking this month?

Robin Murray will try to explain how it’s possible that she’s published six books with academic presses inside a decade. David K. Smith will outline for us the exciting events EIU has in store for the commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the beginnings of the North Atlantic Slave Trade. Grace Wilken will illuminate her collaborative (and award-winning!) project to introduce composting on EIU’s campus.


Who is welcome?

Anyone curious about EIU. While we love to see EIU’s faculty and administrative types, we especially welcome folks from the community who would just like to get to know what’s happening on EIU’s campus.
