Fairhaven Lecture Series

Since 1983, UW-Whitewater faculty and staff from the Whitewater and Janesville campuses, along with area business and community leaders, have been presenting multi-disciplinary lectures to thousands of lifelong learners. Continuing Education partners with Fairhaven Senior Services to host the lectures during the academic year.


Fall 2021 Lecture Series

Science and Society: Connecting Research to Real Life

From climate change to COVID-19, bird adaptations to brain function, our world faces new challenges and opportunities every day. Scientific research provides solutions to problems and impacts our daily lives, local communities, and national policies. Join us this fall as members of the UW-Whitewater faculty share their research interests and learn how the findings make a difference in our society. 

Lectures in the Fall 2021 series will be held on Mondays at 3 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of Fairhaven Senior Services, 435 West Starin Road, Whitewater.  Audiences are restricted to Fairhaven residents only.  Visit the Fairhaven Senior Services website and individual lecture below for updates on public attendance. 

Lectures will be recorded and posted on each individual lecture listed below and YouTube channel.  Lectures may be presented live on Facebook.  Videos of lectures in this series and in past series can be accessed for free any time after they are posted online.
