7th Generation Centennial Lecture Series Kicks Off This Week

The Mohawk Indians believed that all decisions should be made by thinking of the preservation of the earth for the 7th generation. The 7th Generation Centennial lecture series provides us with an opportunity to learn about environmental problems and to focus on solutions that are long-term rather than “quick fixes.” Join us for three different presentations throughout the semester. All lectures begin at 8pm in Bouck Hall Auditorium and are free and open to the public!
