Continuing Education

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.

Spring 2022 Lecture Series

American Profiles

Politicians, activists, musicians, and every day citizens.  Systems, inventions, and tragedies. This spring, we will spend an hour each week, putting the spotlight on changemakers that have made history.  From local stories to those that made a global impact, join us as we take a closer look at some fascinating American profiles.

Lectures in the Spring 2022 series will be held on Mondays at 3 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of Fairhaven Senior Services, 435 West Starin Road, Whitewater and are only open to residents of Fairhaven. Lectures will be recorded and posted to our website and YouTube channel.  Videos of lectures in this series and in past series can be accessed for free any time after they are posted online.

Check our website and follow us on social media for more information and updates on opening to the public.  Any other questions, please contact Kari Borne at or 262-472-1003.
