UW-RF Emeriti Professor Discusses Trip to Haiti
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls offers a free lecture hosted by emeritus professor Curtiss Larson from 2 to 4 p.m. on Nov. 7 in the President's Room of the Hagestad Student Center.
The presentation, "From a Physics Classroom to Haiti: New Fish to Fry," will discuss Larson's role as a volunteer in building a "village" in Haiti and address the progress made and future plans for such humanitarian efforts in a country devastated by poverty.
"We should all have concern for those less fortunate than us, even though our busy daily schedules often keep our action on the back burner," says Larson. "Retirement can provide opportunities for new and very meaningful adventures, not seemingly very closely related to our professional careers."
This presentation is part of the Sunday Emeriti Lecture Series, sponsored by the UW-RF College of Arts and Sciences and the Office of Outreach and Graduate Studies. The lecture is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served following the presentation.
