About Voices of Discovery
The College of Arts and Sciences at Elon University is committed to engaging students and the community in the excitement and wonder of discovery. During the past two decades, scores of discoveries in molecular biology, atomic physics and computer technology have changed the face of science and brought dramatic changes to our world.
The Voices of Discovery speaker series brings to campus preeminent scientists and mathematicians who have left an indelible mark on the way we view the world. They share their remarkable experiences and perspectives with Elon students and the community. This series plays a fundamental role in the university’s commitment to create a science-conscious community and to help students be informed citizens.
Voices of Discovery is just one element of Elon’s efforts to provide outstanding science education. At the Dalton L. McMichael Sr. Science Center, students work in modern laboratories with cutting-edge research tools. They focus on discovery-based learning, undergraduate research and collaboration among the sciences, developing an appreciation for the scientific enterprise and how we acquire new knowledge.
