Special thanks to our sponsor:
The first lecture in the series is in memory of Matt Zillig (pictured left). When Matt passed away in 2008, his friends created a memorial fund to promote Matt's commitment to the idea of global citizenship. The Friends of Matt Zillig sponsor this lecture as well as a social (immediately following the lecture) that features food samples from Germany.
Student fees also help support the community lecture series.
