Project Abstract/ Summary

After a major renovation project, the Collins Center will be formally dedicated on October 3'd. In conjunction with the reopening of the Center, the Hudson Museum seeks support from the Cultural Affairs Committee to offer a four-part lecture series in cooperation with the Climate Change Institute and the Department of Anthropology. This series will explore the impact of climate change on civilizations and the impact of humans on climate change--one of the foremost issues of our times. All events will be held in Hutchin's Hall in the Collins Center and will be free and open to the public and the University community.
