The Brother DeSales Perez Great Books Seminar Series offers a discussion group for alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. The series was renamed in spring 2005 to honor the late Brother DeSales Perez '53, faculty moderator of the Alumni Great Books seminars for 10 years. Led by Professor Robert Gardner, seminars are held on campus on the third Tuesday of the month, from 7-8:30 pm, throughout the academic year (except December).
