The University Lectures Committee supports departments, academic programs and student organizations that bring distinguished lecturers to the UW-Madison campus.
These university-wide lectures must be open to the public; should enrich the general intellectual and cultural life of the university community; and are not primarily supplementary to or extensions of programs of instruction provided by colleges, schools, or departments. Lectures may be presented faced to face or virtually.
The committee does not initiate lecture arrangements. It receives and acts on requests from eligible university groups that are interested in inviting outstanding speakers to the campus. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The committee acts each month on applications submitted by the 15th.
