2015 Fall Focus


The community is invited to engage with SVSU in another exciting, educational and eye-opening Fall Focus lecture series. This year’s program, with the theme of “Discovery!,” features seven speakers who will talk about topics that both test historical narratives and illuminate issues that may shape the future.

The lecture lineup includes a photojournalist persevering amidst one of the most divisive international conflicts, and a scientist who hopes to prevent the next devastating global pandemic. Other guests will ponder the madness behind history’s most famous — and infamous — leaders, discuss the healing power of music, re-evaluate the meaning of the United States’ founding document, and examine both 19th-century slavery as well as the Civil War’s aftermath. 

Join SVSU as the Fall Focus series sends audiences on this latest journey of discovery. All lectures are open to the public. Admission is free of charge. For more information, contact the SVSU Box Office at 964-4261.
