Professor's "Last Lecture"

Seattle Pacific University's Ivy Honorary presents “The Last Lecture of Dr. Lyle Peter” on Monday, May 12, 7:30 p.m. in Otto Miller Hall, room 109. Lyle is a professor of chemistry and will retire this year. Students, faculty, staff, and the general public are welcome to attend. 

The concept of a “Last Lecture" is based on a 2007 lecture and 2008 book by Randy Pausch, a Carnegie Mellon University computer science professor who died from pancreatic cancer in July 2008. In subsequent Last Lectures, professors reflect on what matters most and what wisdom they would hope to share with others. Ivy Honorary is SPU's chapter of the National Mortar Board Honor Society.

The event is free and wheelchair accessible. To request disability accommodation, contact the Disability Services office in advance of the event at 206-281-2272, TTY 206-281-2224, or
