North Central seniors voted to invite Susan Mack, visiting instructor of education, to present the CUAB-hosted Last Lecture to students at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 20, in Meiley-Swallow Hall. The entire campus community is invited.
Her talk is titled “The Education of a Person: A Curricular Narrative.” Mack is a 1968 graduate of North Central College and has been a member of its faculty since 2005. Over the years, she has taught 11 different courses including Methods of Language Arts, Classroom Management and Writing As It Relates to Reading, including graduate-level courses.
The Last Lecture
is a concept started by computer science professor Randy Pausch at Carnegie Mellon University who had incurable cancer when he delivered his last lecture in September 2007. Since that time, colleges across the country have adopted a similar tradition where faculty talk to their students as if it was their last. This is the third year the College Union Activities Board (CUAB) has sponsored North Central’s Last Lecture.
