William Jewell College will offer a series of free seminars, public lectures, film screenings and other activities during the new “Cardinal Term” running January 10 through 19. The events are free and open to the public.

“The extended winter break is the ideal time for such activities,” said Dr. David Sallee, president of William Jewell College. “This is an opportunity to learn about intriguing subjects in a relaxed atmosphere.” Courses will be taught by William Jewell alumni, faculty and friends of the College. No credit will be given.

The new Cardinal Term revives the tradition of William Jewell’s informal “Winterim,” a series of courses that were taught between semesters prior to 1995. “In talking with alumni, I often heard about the great memories they have of the winter term courses,” Dr. Sallee said. “I thought this would be a good opportunity for alumni to come back and engage with our current students.”

The informal courses will feature a wide variety of topics, including Afghan history, independent filmmaking, sustainability in business, and music of the Holocaust. Seminar length and format will vary by topic and instructor.

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged for the seminars to allow for adequate classroom space. Enrollment will close as space fills. The deadline for pre-registration is January 8. For more information, contact Dr. Ron Witzke, Associate Dean for the Core Curriculum, atwitzker AT william.jewell DOT edu or 816-415-7532. The full schedule and enrollment information can be found at www.jewell.edu by clicking on Cardinal Term.

William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than two million.
