Events LED Series — 2018

L.E.D. series returns to University Campus

The School of Arts and Sciences will celebrate its sixth L.E.D. (Learning, Enlightenment, Discoveries) series this January and February with two one-hour presentation sessions. 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 L.E.D. series is “The 1960s,” and our faculty have prepared their topics on this theme according to their respective fields and research.

Both sessions in our L.E.D. series are held in the Student Community Center Boardrooms, Saint Leo University Campus. The sessions run from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
