Lectures

The 2018-2019 academic year will be filled with festivities and special events marking the 175th anniversary of Clarke. The arts and lecture offerings for the year will pay tribute to this milestone with a series of events designed to highlight the theme and showcase our extremely talented alumni, students, and faculty.

The year will be celebrated through art, music, drama, and lectures with a theme of Home. This single word can take on a variety of identities – Clarke as home, Dubuque as home, Iowa as home, pride in where your story starts. The theme of Home allows for celebration, reflection, and hope.

Welcome home to Clarke University.
