Budig Lectures in the School of Education and Human Sciences


True Stories from the Halls of JRP

Bruce Frey

Bruce Frey, Professor
Department of Educational Psychology

In a search for identity, Dr. Frey will explore various narratives of his development as a college professor at KU. He will discuss what he has learned from serving on hundreds of dissertation and comprehensive exam committees, the various roles he has played in teaching and mentoring, and he is very likely to mention, at least once, his bubblegum music podcast, which is wildly popular with the young people.

4:30 p.m.
Thursday, September 15
Joseph R. Pearson Hall
Room 150

Event is free and open to the public
