In the City of Champions, where sports teams are lauded for repeat victories and daring displays of athleticism, there is one team that is often overlooked.
Our department was founded in 1915 and we are celebrating our 100th anniversary during the 2015-2016 academic year. We invite you to join us for the following events:

Any other attendees who wish to do so will be invited to share their reminiscences.This event is part of Cèilidh, which is a campus wide homecoming and family weekend.

This symposium will bring together graduates of our PhD program. Every graduate is invited - there are approximately 230 in total, including 200 since 1960. The symposium will be a two-day event consisting of a few plenary talks, round-table discussions, career autobiography reports, and opportunities to meet informally with fellow graduates.
