It provides an opportunity for all members of the University community - as well as the general public - to meet a distinguished scholar discussing a topic of recognized excellence.
In advance of the Institute's 2015 Working Conference for Educators: Building a Strong Future for Archaeological Outreach and Education the AIA is soliciting a series of one-page descriptions of existing archaeological outreach and education programs.
