Norman L. Ford Science Literacy Lecture Series
The Ford Lecture Series addresses contemporary and cutting-edge scientific topics while encouraging students and the public to become more conversant with the relevance of science in our everyday lives.
The series is made possible through the generous support of a Saint John's alumnus who wanted to honor one of his favorite and most inspiring professors, Dr. Norman Ford, CSB/SJU professor emeritus of biology.
