Inspire. Engage. Transform.

UW-Whitewater has transformed lives and our region since its founding in 1868. During this, our sesquicentennial year, we feature presentations by some of the more than 500 faculty and instructional staff members from the Whitewater and Rock County campuses who inspire our students with their teaching and mentoring, engage the state through their service and outreach, and transform our communities with their research and expertise.

Lectures in the Fairhaven Lecture Series are open to the public at no charge and are held on Mondays at 3:00 pm during the academic year in Fellowship Hall of Fairhaven Senior Services, 435 West Starin Road in Whitewater, Wisconsin. Guest/street parking is adjacent to the building
