This semester’s Suter Science Seminar lineup at Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) includes a registered professional archeologist, a biologist, a psychologist, and a registered nurse.
The events will be held in Swartzendruber Hall of the Suter Science Center, and will be live streamed for the off-campus community on the EMU Facebook page. [You do not need to be a member of Facebook to view the livestream.]

The lectures are made possible by the sponsorship of the Daniel B. Suter Endowment in Biology and the co-sponsorship of supporting programs.
Named in honor of long-time EMU biology professor, Daniel B. Suter (1920-2006), the Endowment in Biology was established in 1986 through the generous donations of alumni and friends and currently consists of over $1 million of invested funds. EMU hopes to double the Suter Endowment in order to more adequately support distinguished faculty and to increase scholarship aid to deserving students.
