Phelps Colloquium 2019–20

The Phelps Colloquium was founded in 2004 as “Lunch with the Provost” by former provost Chuck Phelps, who aspired to bring members of the academic community together in a relaxed setting to hear about research taking place campus-wide, spend time with colleagues outside their normal spheres, and promote cross-school and cross-discipline collaborations.
