Welcome to the Deans' Page

Deans' Hour

"Deans’ hours" are the time designated weekly for community academic and artistic events. These guest lectures, panel presentations, performances, and student-organized symposia provide a collective forum for students and faculty to witness the application of ideas explored in the classroom to the real-worlds of scholarly investigation, scientific experiment, and community life. Wednesdays 2:30 – 3:20pm (7th period), except as otherwise noted.
