BIG IDEAS AT UW-WHITEWATER

The United States owes much of its global prestige to the creative activities of scholars who work in the laboratories, studios, and field stations of universities and colleges throughout the nation. At UW-Whitewater, professors and students engage in efforts to expand our knowledge of ourselves and our place in the world through work in the arts, the sciences, the humanities, and the professions. These creative and scholarly enterprises are one of the institution's greatest natural resources. Welcome to the Fall 2007 Fairhaven Lecture Series, "Big Ideas at UW-Whitewater."
