CU-Boulder Community Relations Office Solicits Ideas On Upcoming Lectures

Because of the diversity of the campus’s academic programs, topics can range anywhere from aerospace engineering to Shakespeare. Popular lecture topics in past years have included smart growth, life in the Caucasus Mountains and the people of ancient Nubia. “We have so many choices available in designing this series of lectures that we want to make sure we’re appealing to the broadest range of interests possible,” said Jaisy Jardine, coordinator of the Chancellor’s Community Lecture Series, which features monthly evening lectures by CU-Boulder faculty. Area residents are invited to e-mail their lecture ideas to Jardine at [email protected] or leave a voice mail message at (303) 492-8384. Topic suggestions that conform to the university’s departmental offerings are most likely to be used, Jardine said. Lectures on agriculture-related topics, for example, would be difficult to arrange because CU-Boulder does not have an agriculture department.”But we’re interested to find out topics people are interested in, so all ideas are welcome,” she said. “We’ll do our best to arrange lectures on topics that seem to be of general interest and that match our faculty expertise.”last_img
