The UC Davis Chancellor’s Colloquium Distinguished Speakers series brings together several distinguished scholars and government leaders who promise to spark engaging conversations with the academic community and broader public around pressing issues of our time. The series is intended to heighten local and national awareness of research at UC Davis and the speakers will also share their vision for university-based research in the 21st century. After each forum, a faculty member will be invited to comment and initiate a Q&A discussion with the audience.These events are free and open to the public.
