Sesquicentennial HokieTalks: Expanding Knowledge
October 16, 2021
Holtzman Alumni Center
9-10 a.m. ET

Join us for the 2021-22 season of HokieTalks and help us celebrate 150 years of impact and engagement. We will be exploring Sesquicentennial themes and celebrating university milestones, including 100 years of women attending Virginia Tech.

The first HokieTalks event of the season features the Sesquicentennial theme of expanding knowledge. Both teaching and learning – as well as community engagement – are integrated in this theme. We will be joined by Virginia Tech experts who will discuss leadership education for the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets; social justice and service learning in South India; and addressing food insecurity and hunger in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Panelists are:
Captain Jamie McGrath, Director for the Major General W. Thomas Rice Center for Leader Development, Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets
Elena Serrano, Professor of Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences/Virginia Cooperative Extension
Bonnie Zare, Professor of Sociology, College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences

There is no charge for attendance; however, we have provided an option to make a gift at checkout for those who would like to contribute. You may choose to support the W. Thomas Rice Center for Leader Development, the Virginia Cooperative Extension Annual Fund, or the Sociology Department Annual Fund.
