Green & Grey Alumni Speaker Series

Green & Grey Alumni Speaker Series

Loyola University Maryland will host the inaugural Green & Grey Alumni Speaker Series featuring Jonathan Lazar, Ph.D., on Wednesday, Nov. 15, at 6 p.m. at McManus Theatre. 

Lazar, a 1995 graduate of Loyola, is a professor in the department of computer and information sciences at Towson University. Lazar is involved in teaching and research on web accessibility for people with disabilities, user-centered design methods, assistive technology, and law and public policy related to human-computer interaction (HCI). His talk, “Crossing Disciplines and Breaking Down Barriers,” will focus on his work on web accessibility for people with disabilities.

Twice each academic year, the Green & Grey Alumni Speakers Series will invite alumni who were members of Loyola’s Green & Grey Society to speak on the Evergreen campus. Since 1989, Loyola University Maryland has selected a small number of men and women from the senior class who demonstrated excellence in academic, personal, and spiritual integration and committed service to Loyola. In the spirit of Jesuit ideals, the Society has served as advisors to the University leaders by identifying and communicating issues of significance present in the lives of community members.

This event is free and open to the public; registration is not required, but encouraged due to limited seating. There will be a light reception at 5:30 p.m. in the lobby of McManus Theatre. For questions, please contact cjberkenkemper@loyola.edu.
