2020 Conference on World Affairs Dates

May 17, 2019

Next year's CWA week is scheduled for April 6-10, 2020, its traditional timing two weeks after the University spring break. Over a year ago, the CWA Board began exploring options to shift the 2020 conference dates so that they would not overlap with religious holidays, as has happened with prior CWA events. However, the CWA Board concluded that it was not possible to change next year's dates due to the lack of availability of crucial campus venues for the event.
