World on Wednesday Lecture Series Spring 2021

While the events of this term have required that we move away from our traditional campus-based formats and engage in more remote forms of learning and sharing, we should not turn away from the pressing global issues that remain present. Our World on Wednesday lecture series was designed to bring a glimpse of the larger global environment to all of us at CSI. 

The Spring 2021 series has continued as planned but is being delivered via Zoom in a virtual format. Below and in the online flyer are the links to the WoW lectures. 

All lectures run from 12:20pm to 1:10pm EST.
