Lectures and Seminars

As part of its educational mission, the Center sponsors lectures, seminars, brown bag talks, symposia, and conferences. The lectures are open to the public and focus on broad diversity topics, and they feature nationally prominent scholars and policy analysts. The brown bags, seminars, and workshops are specialized, small meetings with targeted topics for members of the University of Delaware community.
