CWA event

The CU Conference on World Affairs (CWA), is a campus event that takes place April 6-9, 2022.  This is the CWA’s 74th year, and it brings renowned speakers to campus from all over the world in every imaginable field of endeavor from the arts to business to technology to politics.  In recent years the CWA has hosted President Joe Biden, poet Amanda Gorman, athlete Hope Solo, co-founder of Apple Steve Wozniak, gymnast Aly Raisman, immigrant rights activist Jose Antonio Varga, and co-creator of The Simpsons Mike Reiss, just to name a few of our invited guests.

Students play a central role in planning and implementing the CWA from recruiting speakers to planning sessions to driving speakers from the airport.  We also pair speakers with students for mentoring and career advice and development.

If you are interested in learning more about CWA and how you might get involved, you are invited to a welcome event next Wednesday August 25 from 5:00-7:00 p.m at the Koenig Alumni House on campus.  It will be an informal social gathering with free food, so feel free to stop by for any portion of that window.  To RSVP for the open house, follow this link, so they know how much food to purchase.
