The 15th annual College of Arts and Sciences theme is Peace and Prosperity: Bee the Change for a Better Tomorrow, allowing St. Ambrose University faculty, staff and students to form a commonality between all college-sponsored events throughout the academic year, a news release says.

Themes are driven by current events, trending topics, or special anniversaries. More than a decade since the origination of the idea, The College of Arts and Sciences Project Series continues to generate and deliver meaningful and thoughtful discussion to the campus community.
