Public Lectures and Forums
Guest Lecture Series
There's no better way to study Asia in the heartland of the United States than to listen to scholars, policy makers, business leaders and visitors who either are originally from Asia or spent months or years in the countries of Asia. The AWC Guest Lecture Series invites such people to share with us their life stories, academic research, teaching experiences and business concepts in Asia.
Faculty Lecture Series
The AWC Faculty Lecture Series takes place during the Fall and Spring semesters. This series aims to provide a forum for Creighton faculty to present lectures about their current academic research interests and accomplishments. The Faculty Lecture Series is organized by the Asian Word Center with support from various departments and research institutions at Creighton.
Distinguished Lecture Series
The AWC Distinguished Lecture/Werner Institute Speaker Series aims to bring leading scholars and prominent individuals to visit Creighton University and share their insights and experiences with scholars, policy makers, business leaders and the general public. The lectures are all free and open to the public.
Asian Ethics Forum
Established by the Asian World Center, the Asian Ethics Forum, the first of its kind, is meant to examine, study and promote the role of ethics in Asian political behaviors, governmental policy-makings, business practices and social life. With all views considered from academic, professional and public sectors, the forum invites lectures in its effort to encourage meetings and discussions about common ethical problems, dilemmas and solutions for public good.
