Jones Seminars on Science, Technology, and Society

Jones Seminars invites engineering, science, and technology leaders from across the nation to present and facilitate conversation on cutting edge research or scientific issues of our day. 

This endowed speaker series was launched in the 1970s through the generosity of Charles C. Jones '18 Th'19, who sought to facilitate conversation and learning for the curious-minded. All Dartmouth faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the general public are welcome to attend the seminars, typically held on Friday afternoons. PhD students are required to attend weekly, as well as meet before or after each event to discuss its topic in more detail.

If you would like to receive email reminders about the weekly Jones Seminars, please email with your email address.
