Dean Stricker was the founding chair of the Department of Neuroscience. In each of the 16 years in which he was chair (1986-2002), he delivered a “State of the Department” address presenting his vision of the department and how ongoing activities and planned future developments fit into that vision. Now that he is Dean of the Honors College, he wants to continue that tradition by presenting his vision of the Honors College.
On January 11, 2012, in the auditorium of the Frick Fine Arts Building, Dean Stricker gave his first "State of the Honors College" address. On January 11, 2013, he gave his second address. On January 17, 2014, he gave his third address, a transcript (PDF) of which is available here. On January 18, 2015, he gave his most recent address, a transcript (PDF) of which is available here.
