The Elmhurst College Cultural Season

Elmhurst College is widely known as a venue for cultural and civic engagement, in particular because of its acclaimed public lectures. They explore a wide range of themes, and address some of the most thought-provoking questions of the day.

In recent years, Elmhurst College has hosted such distinguished speakers as the Hon. Sandra Day O’Connor, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Gail Collins, Bob Woodward, Anna Quindlen, David Brooks, Maya Angelou, Bill Nye, Krista Tippett, Taylor Branch, Jeff Corwin, and Rick Steves.

Each year the College welcomes thousands of people to its lectures, which, along with an array of performing and visual arts programming, comprise the Elmhurst College Cultural Season. These events enrich the intellectual life of the campus, and are a distinctive and fitting way for Elmhurst College to contribute to the common good.

We invite you to join us soon for another exciting Cultural Season in fall 2018.
