Dr. Todd Lekan, Associate Professor of Philosophy, is the author of Making Morality : Pragmatist Reconstruction in Ethical Theory, published in 2003.

Dr. Andre DeCuir, Associate Professor of English, will discuss two plays he has written. Vecchio's Last Painting was submitted to a contest for one-acts for teen actors. Heirlooms was written for a contest in which the plays could be no longer than a page and are performed in an airport.
