Our Thursdays at the U lecture series includes a wonderful lineup starting this September 2021! This series, partly funded by the UW-Barron County Foundation, will explore topics in the arts, sciences, public affairs, literary fields and cultural areas. While hosting a variety of speakers, the university does not seek to endorse or promote a particular idea, opinion, topic or product over others. These lectures are free and open to the public.
You are invited to attend each session with us at UW-Eau Claire–Barron County in our Blue Hills Lecture Hall R234.
Please note: Face masks are required
