UM's First Dialogue On Intellectual Diversity To Feature Distinguished Professors Emeriti

Apr. 23, 2013


The College of Arts and Sciences at The University of Montana will host the first “Dialogue on Intellectual Diversity” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25, in Interdisciplinary Sciences Building Room 110.

The dialogue will feature a discussion of the concept of human nature between Regents Professors Emereti Paul Lauren, a historian, and Fred Allendorf, a biologist. It will be moderated by UM Environmental Studies Instructor Rosalyn LaPier.

“This is a first for the College of Arts and Sciences, and we are very excited about it,” said Chris Comer, dean of the college. “It is a night to celebrate some of our most distinguished faculty and discuss larger intellectual issues that we all care about – faculty, students, staff and the community. We hope this will become a regular spring event for the college.”

The event is free and open to the public, and a reception will follow. For more information call Cassie Strauss, director of development and alumni relations with the College of Arts and Sciences, at 406-243-2568 or email
