Our alumni go on to successful careers as medievalists. We help celebrate their success and benefit from their experiences through the “Distinguished Alumni Homecoming” series. Each year CMS hosts a UMN graduate who has ties to our center and who has gone on to have a successful scholarly career. The graduate gives a lecture in our colloquium series and also engages in a professional skills roundtable with our current students.
