Academic Calendar Image

Join us on February 1 at 4 p.m. to hear Dr. Marilen Loyola present her “Last Lecture” via Zoom.

The Last Lecture is part of the Spring Forum series at the University and provides an opportunity for students to nominate a member of the faculty to deliver his or her ‘last lecture’ as the University nears the end of its academic year. Although this year, it’s the non-forum series, Dr. Loyola will present on “Creativity, Crisis, and Why Our Imaginations Matter.”

The Last Lecture series at Rockford University was inspired by Randy Pausch. Dr. Pausch was a professor at Carnegie Mellon University from 1997 to his death in 2008. Before his death, he was asked to give the students his Last Lecture. Dr. Pausch delivered a laugh-filled session of teaching stories, about going after your childhood dreams, and helping others achieve theirs. The Last Lecture Series has been made possible through the generosity of the Father Robert J. Verstynen Trust; honoring Rockford University faculty members for their years of teaching and example of lifelong learning.

Registration is not required for this event, just use this Zoom link on Monday, Feb. 1 at 4 p.m.
