Speakers

The University of Evansville offers speaker's series and other events throughout the academic year.

Crick Lecture Series

Each year, UE's programs in the Cognitive and Neural Sciences jointly sponsor a lecture series on topics of mutual interest. Named in honor of Francis Crick, for his intellectual ambition and cross-disciplinary curiosity, these lectures serve to make the study of the mind and brain accessible to UE and the broader Evansville community. Lectures are free and open to the public.
