Description

In 2000, under the auspices of Vice President and Provost Aaron Podolefsky, the University of Northern Iowa presented a series of ten lectures, delivered by members of the faculty, designed to give "a special opportunity for all of us to pause and consider our histories, our lives today, and our futures as individuals, as members of Iowa families and communities, and as members of the larger human family."

This record series includes videotapes of nine of the ten scheduled lectures.  A videotape of the lecture by Professor William Downs is not present.  The series also includes applications from the faculty to deliver lectures and publicity material for the series.
