Academic Spree Day 2000 is dedicated to Dr. Seymour Wapner, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, who founded this annual event in 1991. Academic Spree Day has become, in many ways, the highlight of our academic year. It showcases the extraordinarily varied and high quality research and creative work that so many Clark students do, inspired, supported, and mentored by our distinguished faculty. We are grateful to Professor Wapner for proposing the creation of this special event and for overseeing it with dedication and enthusiasm every year since its founding.
