The Lee Honors College is pleased to present weekly seminars on a variety of cutting-edge topics, given by outstanding Western Michigan University faculty scholars and Community Members.
The way we choose to eat impacts the environment, our health and our community. This series will explore sustainable agriculture practices, access to food and healthful eating. Speakers will cover a broad range of topics including the influence of politics on food, intersections of social justice and food access, local food system initiatives and more.
Lyceum lectures are held in the Lee Honors College lounge on the main campus of Western Michigan University on Wednesdays from noon to 1 p.m.
Lectures are free and open to students, staff, faculty and the general public. Lunch is not provided, but the audience is welcome to bring brown bag lunches to the seminars.
