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

Classrooms open 30 minutes before each lecture begins. Arriving early is recommended, since seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Advance registration is not required and reservations will not be accepted. The lectures are in English. If you are unable to attend, live stream the lecture or watch after the event. Our office coordinates the programming, which is supported by the Office of the Chancellor, the Office of the Provost and the Division of Continuing Education at CU Boulder.
