Science and Mathematics Colloquium Series

The Science and Mathematics Colloquium Series invites distinguished speakers from related disciplines to present current, exciting scientific research to Columbia College Chicago's faculty, staff and students, as well as to Chicago's broader community. Talks are intended to introduce a general audience to a wide variety of important advances in science and mathematics, their potential applications and their implications for public policy. Reflecting Columbia's emphasis on the arts, select talks examine the intersections among science, mathematics, arts and the media.
