Honors Great Presentation Series

Great Presentations: Honoring the Best, Sharing Knowledge

The Honors Program is proud to host a series of lectures each semester by faculty members of the University of Nevada, Reno and other institutions who have made outstanding contributions in teaching, research, and service. All presenters hold the distinction of being recipients of prestigious awards at the University of Nevada, Reno or their home institution. The Great Presentations have now ended for the 2013-2014 academic year, and we thank those who participated this season!
