EPA Official to Speak at UNO About Importance of Liberal Arts Education
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) College of Arts and Sciences Centennial Speaker Series continues Monday, Nov. 9, with a lecture by Denise MacMillan, who works at the Environmental Protection Agency. The event will take place starting at 3 p.m. in 169 Durham Science Center.
The presentation, “Analytical Chemistry: It Also Takes a Village,” focuses on how a liberal arts education has proven to be an important asset for MacMillan. She serves as a team leader for the Analytical Chemistry Core of the National Health and Environmental Research Laboratory in the EPA’s Office of Research and Development in North Carolina. MacMillan received her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from UNO in 1985.
The event and following reception are free and open to the campus community, alumni, and the public.
The yearlong speaker series is part of the UNO College of Arts and Sciences' centennial celebration, which highlights the college's many departments and alumni. Established in 1909, Arts and Sciences is the university's first college and largest academic unit.
