About Us

Scientia sponsors an annual series of colloquia (past years' programs are listed in our Archive page) devoted to the exploration of a broad topic from a variety of points of view. These colloquia are open to the general public. The topic of the 2018-2019 Scientia colloquia is PANOPLY. Unless otherwise noted, the colloquia will take place on the specified Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m. and will be held in McMurtry Auditorium, Duncan Hall (enter the main/foyer entrance and then room 1055, the fourth door right). A reception will follow each event.
