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.
This year’s CWA had a wider focus on issues surrounding mental health and self-care. It was an effort to broaden the conversation around the struggles young people face and how they can cope with issues such as stress and loneliness.
The City of Boulder’s flagship HOP service will be free to everyone from April 9 through April 13 to support the Conference on World Affairs. The HOP, operated by the City of Boulder, runs between Boulder Junction, the Twenty Ninth Street Mall, CU Boulder and downtown. One-way fares are typically $3.
