Coming Events

Wednesday II 2023

The presentations, forums, and workshops sponsored by the Emeriti Council address topics pertinent to retired faculty and of interest to the WMU community, and social events. Guests are always welcome. Wednesday II presentations are usually scheduled for 2 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month from September through May in the Emeriti Lounge in Walwood Hall on East Campus. Emeriti or special guests present programs of interest. Light refreshments are offered. Events also may be held at sites of interest within the University or off-campus. Recent topics and venues have included a tour and presentation by Lynn Houghton, regional History Curator at the Zhang Legacy Collections Center; a visit to the Michigan Geological Repository for Research and Education, with William B. Harrison, III, Geology Professor Emeritus; Monologues Performed by Sociology Professor Emeritis Stanley Robin; a reading and discussion of Eastern European fairy tales  by World Languages Emerita Professor Dasha Nisula; and a discussion of racism led by Barbara Hempill. 

  • The presentation by Dr. Keele, originally scheduled for February 14 has been rescheduled for March 13. This will better accommodate schedules and expectations for the weather. Dr. Keele's presentation will be from 2:00-3:00 in the Emeriti Lounge of Walwood Hall.
  • Secondly, we have scheduled an April Wednesday II presentation. Dr. Jeffrey Angles will speak on Godzilla, translation, and Japanese society from 1:30-2:30 in the Emeriti Lounge of Walwood Hall.
