Meeting of the Minds at Northrop

Apr 24, 2014

With the building open and countless events happening inside the newly renovated space, Northrop is no longer just the performing arts epicenter for the University. This week’s events and activities inside Northrop exemplify the building’s new mission of connecting the campus with communities beyond by celebrating innovation in the arts, performance, and academics. Where else on campus can you see a dance performance, attend a lecture, watch a film, and listen to a concert all in one week?

This week at Northrop, we are lucky to have a wide array of guest lecturers speaking and sharing their work with the students at the University and the larger community.  These lectures and discussions are made possible through organizations such as Northrop, the Institute for Advanced Study, and the Center for Spirituality and Healing,

Here’s a list of the insightful events this week:
