Future Fest
Thursday, Oct. 13, 2022
1 – 3 p.m. 
Lola and Rob Salazar Wellness Center Courtyard

Future Fest is an annual part of CU Denver’s welcome back festivities that invites faculty, staff, students, and the broader Lynx community to learn about the progress of CU Denver’s visionary 2030 strategic plan, hear from this year’s Lynx Lecturers, and come together. 

In addition to the inspiring talks and research presentations from our community, there will be a festive environment filled with some of Denver’s favorite food trucks and live music, where you will have the opportunity to connect with your peers over a shared pride of the campus you call home. This year’s Future Fest will also coincide with our 50th anniversary celebration.

Interested in becoming a Lynx Lecturer?

Faculty and students who are engaged in cutting-edge research, scholarship, or creative works and CU Denver community members who have impactful work or stories to share can apply to be a 2022 Lynx Lecturer. If selected, you will have the opportunity to give a powerful four-minute, Ted Talk-style presentation using the medium of your choosing. To be considered, please submit your ideas here. A selection committee composed of last year’s speakers will review all submissions and choose this year’s lineup.
