Trailblazing Speaker Series

The University Forum is a lecture series designed to introduce Utah Tech students, faculty, and the St. George community to diverse ideas, topics, and personalities and to widen their world view. Forum lectures are free and open to the general public for participation. Utah Tech students can earn one college credit by signing up for LLS 1000R (available to any student with no prerequisites), attending lectures regularly, carefully considering the ideas expressed, and writing about the presentations. This course can be repeated.

Location: Dunford Auditorium of the Browning Learning Center

Date/Time: Tuesdays from 12:00–12:50 p.m. in the fall and spring

“All University Forum events are free and open to the public.”
