PLACE Programs

Thematic Program

This year’s theme is Wellness, Happiness, and Mental Health.  The theme is incorporated in a wide array of activities and programming throughout the campus.  Activities and programming include faculty lectures, student presentations, guest speakers, common reader, symposium of community members, incorporating the theme into courses, student debates, university library book club, and dramas. 

Lecture Series

This is a series of organized lectures to generate excitement and engagement at our university and in our community. Our goal is to facilitate learning and collaboration among students, faculty, and community members by providing opportunities to discuss and debate a common theme, which allows us to develop and nurture a community of learners.

Faculty SUPERlectures

Faculty SUPERlectures are traditional class meetings that are also open to all members of the campus and local community.  Faculty presenters incorporate the academic theme into their course content.


This consists of a formal gathering of experts to discuss issues relevant to the academic theme for the year.
