The John F.X. Mannion Lecture Series at Onondaga continues in 2012 with presentations by esteemed individuals in both the campus and greater community. The series was created by Onondaga Professor Mark Muhammad and incorporated into his course, Communication @ Work, to bridge gaps that exist between the study and the actual practice of communication at Onondaga Community College. In the “Series,” leaders from a variety of fields will discuss communication as it relates to their workplace, expertise or areas of concern.
All members of the campus community and the Central New York community are invited to attend. These presentations take place every Tuesday through May 1, 2012 from 12:30 - 1:45 p.m. in Mawhinney 245.
