Do you love to learn? Are you interested in the arts and humanities, science or music? Brush up on your knowledge through free public lectures offered through our office. The series runs during the fall and spring semesters and features some of CU Boulder's most dynamic faculty.
Spring 2023 lectures will be in a hybrid format. You will be able to choose between attending in person or virtually. Both formats will include audience participation.
Attend in person: Registration will not be required to attend in person, but seats will be strictly limited to 200 people. Please click below on the individual lecture boxes for location and parking information.
Attend virtually: A live-stream of the in-person lecture will be hosted in a Zoom Webinar format. Registration to attend virtually is required for each lecture and is available by clicking on the individual lecture boxes below. Registration is not available over the phone. Note that the Zoom Room will open shortly before each lecture. You do not need to download Zoom to your computer to join the webinar once you are registered.
