Lecture & Arts series

The mission of the Lecture & Arts series at UW-Stevens Point at Wausau is to bring educational, culturally-enriching, high-quality, arts programs to students and community members throughout the year.

Events include our HANK Talks, other lectures, concerts, artist presentations and exhibits, film showings, poetry readings, theater productions and much more!
