LCWA World Affairs Colloquium Series
The World Affairs Colloquium Series puts the School's global impact on center stage. In this Series the School’s faculty and advisory board bring to our campus speakers with prominent international experience to address topics of world interest. The speakers, their topics, and the discussions generated between students, faculty, and community are one more way that the School fulfills its mission to be the College’s place where disciplines merge, the realities of the world are confronted, and where knowledgeable, engaged citizens of that world come of age.
