Dixie Forum is designed to introduce the St. George community and DSU students, faculty and staff to diverse ideas and personalities while widening their worldviews via a 50-minute presentation. Dixie State students can earn one college credit by signing up for HUM 1000, attending lectures regularly, carefully considering the ideas expressed and writing about the presentations.
DSU Art Professor Glen Blakley will offer a presentation on ceramic arts as the next installment of the weekly series at noon Tuesday, Sept. 30, in the Dunford Auditorium of the Browning Resource Center on the DSU campus.
