The speaker is Daniel E. Wueste. The event is free and open to the public.

“I’ve attended several lectures led by Dr. Wueste, and I’m certain the greater Husson community will find his manner, topic, and experience of great interest,” states Cliff Guthrie, Associate Professor at Husson and lead organizer for the Symposium.
