Do you love to learn?

Are you interested in the arts and humanities? Science? Music?

Brush up on your knowledge through free public lectures offered through our office. The series runs during the fall and spring each year and features some of CU Boulder's most dynamic faculty.

General Information

Doors open 30 minutes before each lecture begins. Arriving early is recommended, since seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
