Big Ideas. Endless Discoveries.

Through our partnerships with campus and community groups and the generous time and effort of our volunteers, we're able to create enlighting content available to all. 

There are many ways to get involved with the CWA year-round or during conference week. The CWA program committee is composed of CU students, faculty, staff and Boulder community members who volunteer their time to consider the crucial issues of the day, research candidates for CWA, and create exciting panels that will challenge our audiences.

The 2023 CU Conference of World Affairs is scheduled April 12-14, 2023 and includes a celebration of CWA’s 75th year anniversary.

For the past few months, CWA has been partnering with the Right Here, Right Now United Nations Summit that will be hosted at CU Boulder in December 2022. Right Here, Right Now will examine the human impacts of climate change globally. 

CWA 2023 will continue and expand conversations related to the global climate crisis.  We’ll do what CWA does best—bring a diverse and eclectic lens to the issues and opportunities. 

We’re looking for volunteers to join the Program Committee which identifies speakers and plans CWA 2023.

Subcommittees subject areas include: Arts, Business, Film, Human Condition, International Affairs, and Science & Technology. Most committees meet weekly through January.
