Arts and Sciences’ LED Series

The LED Series: Learning, Enlightenment, Discoveries

The School of Arts and Sciences will celebrate its fourth LED Series with two one-hour panel presentations. 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 “Mystery and Wonder,” and our faculty have prepared their presentations on this theme according to their respective fields and research.
