Thursdays @ the U lecture series will run throughout the spring and fall semesters. The 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.
All sessions are noon-1 in the Blue Hills Lecture Hall, R234, Rice Lake
