Each semester, FSAD offers seminars on topics important to our teaching and research.  The typical audience consists of graduate students, academic staff and faculty, however these seminars are open to the general public.  Seminars are usually held on Wednesdays from 12:20 - 1:10 PM in T01 Human Ecology Building, unless otherwise noted.  Refreshments re served at noon.  For more information, contact Karen Steffy at 607-255-8605.
