McCaig Institute Seminar Series
The Seminar Series is put together by a group of dedicated student leaders. Speakers and topics are chosen to reflect the breadth of the research produced by members of the McCaig Institute.
The McCaig Institute's Seminars usually take place on Wednesdays at noon, except for the first week of the month when we have a special seminar on Monday at noon.
The McCaig Institute Seminar Series will return in September 2020.
