The Albert Dorman Colloquium Series

Honors Colloquium Series

Professor Martina Decker speaking at TEDxNJIT

Staying informed about all aspects of the world around you beyond your professional interests is an essential component of leadership.

The Albert Dorman Colloquium Series focuses on the interface between Science, Technology and Society. Colloquia normally meet during university common hours 8-12 times each semester. They feature talks by - and conversations with - industry, academic, and government leaders on a wide range of topics. Field trips to corporate, scientific, cultural, and community organizations are also included. In addition, some important campus political and cultural events are co-sponsored by the Honors College and regarded as part of the Colloquium series.

Honors students must attend at least 2 colloquia each semester and are strongly encouraged to attend more than the required amount. You are welcome to review past colloquia topics and speakers here. Organizations interested in co-sponsoring a colloquium must complete and submit a Co-Sponsorship Application Form.pdf.
