Aspen Pointe Speakers Series
Since the fall of 2005, the College of Letters & Science has sponsored the Aspen Pointe Speakers Series, a very successful outreach program where we arrange for a speaker to give a talk to residents at Aspen Pointe, an "active retirement" community in Bozeman. It's a great opportunity for faculty members to share their research with an audience that often can't make it to campus for lectures and talks. There is typically one talk per month in the fall and spring semesters for a total of 6-7 speakers per year.
Between the fall of 2005 and spring of 2009, we had 25 speakers from the College of Letters & Science participate in the speakers series. In the fall of 2009, the program was expanded university-wide to include speakers from all of the seven college on campus. The program is still coordinated in the Dean's Office of the College of Letters & Science.
