The first event in the spring 2018 lineup of the Leon S. Peters Ethics Lecture Series was a discussion about “Me Too Moment: Sexual Harassment and Professional Life.” Attendees were able to discuss the challenges of working in professional fields affected by recent sexual harassment scandals.
The Peach Blossom Festival helps young people realize the importance of reading literature aloud and teaches them about interpretation, performance and being an audience member.

Fresno State Music Department faculty and students will present a tribute concert on March 4 to honor the memory of composer Dr. Brad Hufft, longtime music faculty member who passed away suddenly last spring.

A Fresno State alum, Dr. Jason Brown, was awarded the graduate dean’s medal in 2002 while earning his master’s degree in linguistics. Fast forward to today and he is now a professor at the University of Auckland and the head of the Linguistics Society of New Zealand. We were able to chat with Dr. Brown about his time at Fresno State and how his career path has developed since graduating. He offered some advice for students.
The Fresno State Blended Arts Festival was a collaborative arts event and the first of its kind to be on campus. It featured a free guest speaker series followed by an evening concert.
