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
