In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Robert D. Klein University Lectureship, Dagmar Sternad, Professor of Biology, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Physics, has been selected as this year’s Robert D. Klein University Lecturer. Professor Sternad’s talk, “The Wonder of Human Movement: How the Brain Controls the Body,” will be delivered at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, April 8, in the Raytheon Amphitheater.
The Klein University Lecturer Award established in 1964, upon the recommendation of the Faculty Senate, honors a member of the teaching faculty who has contributed with distinction to his or her own field of study. The University Lecture enables that faculty member to share the fruits of that scholarship with the University community and the general public. In 1979, the award was renamed in tribute to the late Robert D. Klein, professor of mathematics, chairman of the Faculty Senate Agenda Community, and vice chairman of the Faculty Senate.
