GREEN BAY – Associate professor Steve Meyer is the second to last speaker in the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s “Last Lecture Series” line-up. Meyer will present, “Forget the Three T’s: Focus on the Six C’s,” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 27.
The Last Lecture Series is part of UWGB’s 50th Anniversary celebration. Each month a UW-Green Bay faculty member is chosen to give a public presentation on a topic of his or her choice under the premise that it’s their last. Lectures take place in the University Union’s Christie Theatre, at 2420 Nicolet Drive, Green Bay and are free open to the public.
“I watched Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture online and was very moved by what he had to say,” Meyer said in regards as to why he chose his topic. “Several years ago when UWGB’s Residence Hall programmers asked me to present a Last Lecture, I thought long and hard about what I would present. It would definitely not be anything related to my academic background – in the end any knowledge I’ve gained about meteorology and climatology isn’t going to change anybody’s life or way of thinking. Like Randy Pausch, I want to leave behind a message that I believe will help people put life into perspective. To cause them to think about what they will do with the years they have left, and to be thankful for all they have experienced throughout their years.”
Meyer has been a professor at UW-Green Bay since 2001. He received his Bachelor’s at Northern Illinois University, and both his Master’s and Ph.D. at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. He teaches courses in the Natural and Applied Sciences department. He was a FOCUS Co-director for 8 years, has twice served as chair of the University Committee and recently became the Secretary of the Faculty and Staff.
The following is the remaining Last Lecture:
- April 13 – Phil Clampitt, Professor, Information and Computing Science, “The Magical Connection between Uncertainty, Innovation, and the Human Spirit.”
