Experience UWF Downtown Lecture Series

The University of West Florida College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities presents the Experience UWF Downtown Lecture Series showcasing scholars of outstanding prominence who promote the value and role of the Liberal Arts in building and sustaining contemporary culture.


The Seligman First Amendment Lecture Series, September 12

Since its inception in 2009, the Seligman First Amendment Lecture Series has fostered dialogue about First Amendment issues by uniting the University and local community in meaningful conversation. We aim not only to promote a robust discussion, but, like the freedoms protected in the United States, we hope this opportunity for free discussion will also promote understanding and friendship among our fellow citizens.

In partnership with the Experience UWF Downtown Lecture Series, the Seligman First Amendment Lecture Series will offer three events.
