The Adsit Lecture Series was established in 1999 by Harriet M. McNulty and Willcox Adsit, and brings visiting lecturers to SEM in order to share their expertise with students and faculty. We have a longstanding tradition of exceptional SEM alumnae speakers, including Lauren Belfer and Suzanne Bradley, MD.

Prior to her time at WKBKW, Liz worked as a feature reporter and producer on “Bengal Magazine” as part of the Buffalo State College Athletics team. In addition, she held the title of Communications Specialist as a member of Mayor Byron Brown’s Communications Office.
