Free Viewing/Lecture Series

Thursdays from the U

Our Thursdays at the U lecture series will not run this spring semester. However, our team is already in full swing planning for a wonderful lineup starting this September 2021, and we will have it posted right here as soon as it is finalized! 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.

Our Fall 2020 lecture series was presented virtually and you are invited to watch all of the programs using the links below to connect.
