Join the Waidner-Spahr Library in celebrating the work of our faculty and staff members. We host up to three FaculTeas each semester to provide an opportunity for the entire community to learn about the richness of research activity going on at the college outside of the classroom setting.
FaculTeas run from 4:30-5:30 p.m. and are held in the Stafford Reading Area (main level fishbowl) unless otherwise noted.

Here Prof. English will introduce a few poignant examples that illustrate what physicists mean by emergence and briefly highlight connections to his own research.
