Symposium

The annual Keefe-Bruyette Symposium, held on the campus of the University of Saint Joseph, promises to be an inspiring day of learning about investigations in mathematics and science inquiry in the early childhood and elementary classroom. National education experts, as well as experienced classroom teachers, offer hands-on workshops about math and science teaching.

The symposium is typically held every third Monday in March.

The symposium is made possible by the generous support of Gene F. Bruyette H'04, Kathleen Barry Bruyette '49, the late Harry Keefe, and Anita Keefe, long-time educational philanthropists.
