Public Lectures

The Graduate School at the University of Washington proudly presents the 2013-2014 public lecture series. This series is being 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. Additionally, we have now added the Signature Speaker series. Learn more about these endowments →

All lectures are free and open to the public, except where noted. To ensure a seat, please register in advance. Once registration for each event is available to the public, we will post link to register online on the individual lecture page. You can access the lecture pages by clicking on the pictures below. Please be advised that standby seating will be offered but a seat cannot be guaranteed without a reservation. Feel free to direct all registration related questions to the UW Alumni Association at 206.543.0540 or 800.AUW.ALUM.

Signature Speaker Series

The Signature Speaker programming was created in 2013. It combines funding from the three endowments managed by the Graduate School: Walker Ames, Jessie and John Danz and Mary Ann and John D. Mangels. The purpose of this programming is to bring high-profile speakers to campus whose work and research aligns with some of the UW's broader campus-wide initiatives. Unlike our slate of free lectures, the Graduate School has decided to charge a nominal $5.00 fee to attend. Read more →

Unless otherwise noted, all lectures will begin at 6:30 p.m. and take place in Kane Hall, located on the UW Seattle campus (see our parking/driving directions).

You do not need to be an alum of the University of Washington to attend or register.

PLEASE NOTE: On a lecture-by-lecture basis, the University of Washington will attempt to offer standby seating to the Graduate School Public Lecture Series for those who did not or could not register in advance for a lecture. Standby seating is not guaranteed, and the UW reserves the right to amend the standby seating policy at any time with no further notice.
