Dr. Brian Doctor, an instructional associate professor of biology who has been at the University of Mississippi since 2013, will give ‘The Last Lecture’ tomorrow, Friday, May 4, at 4PM in Nutt Auditorium during the last class session of the last day of classes for the academic year.

The University of Mississippi Tassels Chapter of Mortar Board is proud to present 2017/2018 “The Last Lecture,” based on Randy Pausch’s book Last Lecture. The Mortar Board asks one university professor to deliver a lecture to end the academic year as if it were the last lecture of his/her career. Professors are asked to consider their legacy in higher education and what final thoughts he/she would want to impart on students.
