A guide to events on our campuses.

Assembly Series

A tradition of convening thought leaders since 1953


Since 1953, the Assembly Series has presented more than one thousand of the most important voices of our time. Its programs are always free and open to the public, although some events may have limited seating. We invite you to join others from our community to be inspired, challenged and entertained. For a fascinating trip back in time, check out Past Speakers.
