Inauguration week panels will highlight biomedical science, free expression
May 17, 2023
Two academic panels composed of Northwestern University faculty will convene to discuss contemporary topics of importance in higher education — biomedical science and engineering and freedom of expression — in the days leading up to the inauguration of President Michael H. Schill.
On May 30 and June 1, Provost Kathleen Hagerty will deliver introductory remarks, and livestreams will be available on the inauguration website for those who cannot attend in person.
Both events are free and open to the Northwestern community. In-person attendance is limited; register to attend in person by May 24. Information about the panels and panelists follow.
