Pizza With Provost Plumb

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Our last Pizza With a Prof of the semester is going to be a bit different from what we usually do - we will be hearing from the Provost and Executive Vice President of St. Thomas, Dr. Richard Plumb! Dr. Plumb is going to share what his role is at St. Thomas and what he's done for/is working on doing for the Honors Program here. We're going to leave plenty of time for Q&A, so come with good questions for Dr. Plumb (each question asked earns you ONE ADDITIONAL point!). Because we've only had one other Pizza with a Prof event this semester, we are making this event worth TWO POINTS to encourage as many scholars to come as possible!
