The Saint Louis University School of Education has announced their new 2018-2019 Lecture Series. These events are co-sponsored by the School of Education and the Office of the Vice President of Research.
The lecture series, in its first year, is designed to bring high-profile speakers and researchers to the Saint Louis University campus to interact with students and faculty. During this first year, SLU will welcome researchers from the University of Chicago, North Carolina State University and the University of Missouri, among others. These events, which will occur once a month, will also include opportunities for students to interact with the visiting speakers.
The first session will be held at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 13, and will feature Kelvin Adams, Ph.D., who has served as Superintendent of Saint Louis Public Schools (SLPS) for more than 10 years. The event, which includes lunch followed by the lecture and a question-and-answer session, will be held in Boileau Hall.
Adams’ talk will focus on the challenges and successes of SLPS over the last decade, and also on how SLU might partner with the district to further support the educational progress of students in St. Louis schools.
