Academic Adventure Series

UWM’s Academic Adventurers is a continuing series of informal Friday afternoon programs which give members of the UWM community the opportunity to hear about their colleagues adventures abroad and afield.

Talks begin at 3 p.m. in the American Geographical Society Library, third floor, east wing of the Golda Meir Library.

A reception with light refreshments, sponsored by the Friends of the Golda Meir Library, accompanies each talk.  For more information or to arrange for special needs, call 414-229-6282.
