PAST  SEMESTERS

Lectures, trips and special events for the past twelve semesters (back to the Spring of 2012)
are shown below by academic area 
for two purposes:

1)  to provide an overview of the diversity of the academic subjects presented by the IRP,  and

2)  to provide specific program topics that have been discussed recently, which may create
——-
suggestions for new topics in future IRP semesters.

Some lecture topics may be listed more than once because they are
——-a part of more than one academic area.

The date of the lecture, trip or special event follows the lecture title or description.

Over time we will add to this listing of past lectures, bus trips and IRP events.
