UWC hosts 5 Lecture Luncheons each year. Each event begins with a buffet lunch with plenty of time for catching up with friends. The program then begins with announcements about upcoming activities or UWC business, followed by a 45 minute lecture. Speakers include CU faculty, local experts on science, arts, history, natural history, or other topics, and authors or writers.

Topics for the year’s Lecture Luncheons are announced in September. Lecture Luncheons occur in October, November, January, February and March, on the second Tuesday of the month.
