Conference on World Affairs

The Conference on World Affairs, held each year during the second week of April, is the largest event in Boulder, attracting 92,000 students and visitors to over 200 sessions, all of which are free and open to the public. Roger Ebert, who was a participant for four decades, called it the “conference on everything conceivable,” as topics are hardly limited to international affairs. No matter what your interests are, you’re sure to find something alluring in this year’s schedule. The World Affairs Athenaeum, founded in a similar spirit to the annual Conference on World Affairs, focuses on individual distinguished guests who spend two days on campus visiting classes and speaking at public events. The CWA relies on the dedication of student volunteers.
