Clara Thompson Hall
No audio is available for this convocation.
It's the end of the world as we know it…or is it? Join Theme Year Director Sean Terry as he introduces this year's convocation series. Dr. Terry began teaching at Drury in 1998, and he's led students in hands-on learning experiences from studying (and sampling!) food of the world to on-the-beach field research in Hawaii.
This theme year brings together scholars from science, philosophy, public policy, and the arts – all to explore some big questions: How do individuals balance conservation and consumption? Can corporations and crustaceans survive and thrive in the same environment? Does this climate change business mean big changes for day-to-day business?
