Discovery Series Logo

The Discovery Series is composed of expositions from prestigious members of their field as well as new voices with innovative ideas. The world of Information is exponentially expanding every moment and can be overwhelming to try and keep up with. We hope that we can build a thriving community for conversations about what is important to you as well as exciting advancements in the field.  We welcome suggestions or submission!  Please contact the Dean’s Office at with suggestions for topics and or speakers.

The expositions will be streamed live and open to the public for participation in person as well as in the stream. They will be recorded and made available afterward through this website and our youtube channel.  We look forward to your participation!
