Arts and Sciences’ LED series — March 6-7

The School of Arts and Sciences continues its fifth LED series (Learning, Enlightenment, Discoveries) with one-hour panel presentations on March 6 and 7. In the spirit of the popular TED talks (Technology, Entertainment, Design), this series of faculty-led presentations and discussions is designed for both Saint Leo University students and the wider community to showcase the richness of intellectual life in our school. We aim to share the exciting and inspiring ideas explored in our own diverse areas of interest with the larger Saint Leo community. The theme for this spring’s LED series is “Time,” and our faculty have prepared their topics on this theme according to their respective fields and research.
