UW Graduate School

Lecture Series

The Graduate School at the University of Washington proudly presents the 2018-2019 public lecture series. This series is brought to the UW community, citizens of Seattle, and the state of Washington through three very generous private endowments: The Walker-Ames Fund, The Jessie and John Danz Fund, and the Mary Ann and John D. Mangels Fund.

The UW prides itself in offering safe spaces for challenging conversations. We would love to host you for some interesting and thought provoking talks. Unless otherwise noted, all lectures are free and open to the public.

Lecture seating can only be guaranteed with a reservation. Registration links are available on the individual lecture pages; you can access the lecture pages by clicking on the photos below. As a courtesy, standby seating will be offered whenever possible. Feel free to direct all registration-related questions to the Graduate School at 206.543.5900.

The University is committed to providing access, equal opportunity, and reasonable accommodation in its services, programs, activities, education, and employment for individuals with disabilities. To request disability accommodations, contact the UW Disability Services Office at least 10 days in advance at 206.543.6450 (voice), 206.543.6452 (TTY), 206.685.7264 (fax) or dso@uw.edu.
