Content and research should be shared, not confined to a classroom. Our mission as a comprehensive community college is to provide opportunities to our service area to support lifelong learning.

Iowa Central Community College is thrilled to announce the remainder of the 2013-14 Lecture Spotlight Series for spring, a FREE opportunity to learn more about a topic and to meet our faculty members.  Last fall, faculty members from Liberal Arts and Sciences shared their content expertise and special interests with the general public Monday evenings from 7:00-8:00PM in the Bioscience and Health Science (BHS) Auditorium on the Fort Dodge Campus.

We kicked off the spotlight last fall with Dr. Steve Openshaw’s research about losing weight with Mediterranean and Paleo diets, eating with an anti-carb and anti-grain focus. Almost 100 students, staff, and community members attended opening night. If you missed this lecture, he is offering the information again on Monday, February 3.

Other faculty presented research on human attraction, heart health, psychology, Peruvian history and culture, and more!

The following lectures spotlights are planned Mondays @ 7:00PM in BHS-105 through March:

  • Extreme couponing with Dr. Anne Macek-Lachelt on February 10
  • From the Maya to the Inca: Pre-Colombian Mexico and Peru with David Drissel on February 17
  • Motivation with Mike Craft on February 24
  • Safe Travels Home and Abroad with Michelle Ramthun and others on March 3
  • Trees with Beth Collins on March 10
  • March 17th no lecture
  • Philosophy with Shawn Haake on March 24
  • Everyday Math with David Busch on March 31
