Prominent Women Alumni From UND Bring Their Experiences Back To Campus Feb. 5

The Hultberg Lectureship Series, an event that features successful women alumni from UND sharing their professional experiences with the University community, is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5, in the Gorecki Alumni Center Gransberg Community Room.

The Hultberg Lectureship Series was established 25 years ago with a gift through the UND Foundation by Clara E. Hultberg in memory of her parents Hans and Suzanne Hultberg.

Clara Hultberg was a 1928 UND Graduate, her interests where in stimulating challenges and opportunities for students in business. Each year, successful women alumni from UND bring their professional experiences to the University community through this unique event.
