Faculty Lecture

Established in 1959, the Faculty Lecture features a member of the Mount Union faculty. This annual event affords the chosen faculty member an opportunity to give a special lecture relating to interesting or important developments in the individual's own field or exploring matters of general concern to the faculty.

Dr. Robert Woodward is this year's speaker.  Woodward is an associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Mount Union. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in chemistry, a Bachelor of Science degree in biology, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in synthetic organic chemistry, all from The Ohio State University. Woodward was also awarded the Mount Union Great Teacher Award in 2015. He has been a member of the Mount Union faculty since 2012.

Woodward will be giving a lecture titled “The (Microscopic) Enemy Among Us: Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria and Humanity’s Response."  He will discuss the emergence of antibiotic resistance in bacteria and how humanity is responding using novel approaches in the laboratory, health care facilities, and antibiotic marketplace.

This event is not open to the public.  Only Mount Union faculty, staff and students are permitted to attend the in-person event.  A virtual live stream link of the lecture is below.
