The Colloquium Series is an interdisciplinary working group of faculty throughout UTEP that meet to present and discuss their current research projects. The goal of the series is to connect faculty and students across disciplines to highlight research, engage in research dialogue, and to promote interdisciplinary research and collaborations. At each colloquium, an individual presents a current research project, which is then followed by a discussion among audience members. The colloquium series is open to the UTEP community and public in a brown-bag setting (bring your lunch). Unless otherwise noted, colloquia occur every Thursday from Noon-1:00 in the Health Sciences Building, Room 219.** If you are interested in presenting a paper at a colloquium, please contact Drs. Boyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Scheller (email@example.com). Below is this semester's schedule.
**The Colloquium Series will return in Fall 2018. Time and Location will be updated accordingly.**
