Seminar Days

March 24, 1982
April 23, 1993


A precursor to today's "Community Day" at Alverno, Seminar Day was created as "an opportunity for students, staff and faculty [and sometimes members of the Milwaukee community] to come together to learn from one another, share information and resources, take a break from the regular grind, and rejuvenate as lifelong learners." Seminar Day typically focused on one topic such as "chaos," "creativity," or "democracy." The Research Center on Women sponsored two such days. The first, "Women and the City," focused on women in the urban environment. The second was on Wisconsin women and was entitled, "Wisconsin Women Making a Difference."
