A Week-Long Community of Learning
The CWA is unique in the commitment and enrichment afforded by its speakers and performers. Participants find reward in engaging
with a fascinating and diverse group of colleagues from around the globe as well as musical and social events throughout the week.
Open to the Public, Without Charge
Although most CWA events take place on the University of Colorado Boulder campus, conference sessions and activities
are open to the public and there is no admission fee. CWA is made possible through the many contributions of its volunteers
and financial supporters as well as its distinguished speakers who attend at their own expense.
A University/Community Partnership
University faculty, staff, and students work alongside Boulder community members on the CWA program committee
to recruit each year’s CWA speakers and performers and to plan the week's events. Students provide local transportation,
serve as ambassadors, and welcome speakers into their classrooms. Gracious Boulder community members open their homes
to host our speakers for the week.
