NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Norwich University will kick off the Spring 2013 Todd Lecture Series with “Engineering Peace and Justice,” a talk by author and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering Emeritus at Bucknell University Dr. Aarne Vesilind on Monday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m. in Dole Auditorium.

Hosted by the David Crawford School of Engineering, the hour long presentation will conclude with a Q&A session.

“Dr. Vesilind is a prolific Environmental Engineering author and one of the leaders of the Environmental Engineering field since the early 1970s,” said Engineering Professor Michael Kelley. “He is indeed an environmental futurist grounded in leadership, ethics and values.”

The Todd Lecture Series is named in honor of US Army retired Maj. Gen. and Norwich President Emeritus W. Russell Todd, ‘50, and his wife, Carol, in gratitude for their dedicated service to the University. With this series, Norwich reaches out to bring important, significant lecturers to campus.
