    Retirees and Friends of MURA:

    The 'Exploring Consciousness' symposium will be held on the university campus on Wednesday, October 16th.

    The symposium, which coincides with the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the founding of the Faculty of Health Sciences, will bring together speakers from across campus as well as an outside expert (Dr. Michael Mozer, University of Colorado). The symposium will deal with various aspects of consciousness and will not be too technical. There is no admission fee or registration, and Room 1A1 has approximately 330 seats. Retirees are very welcome to attend.

    A poster and event agenda are attached.

    For more information, please contact Dr. Alan McComas at
