A tradition of convening thought leaders since 1953
The Assembly Series, Washington University’s signature lecture series, enjoys a long and rich tradition. When the speaker series was established, its programs were held Wednesdays at 11 a.m. in Graham Chapel, and no classes were scheduled so that the entire campus community could assemble. Today, programs are presented in various venues throughout the campus.
Assembly Series programs are always free and open to the public, although some programs may have limited seating. Please check this site for new information or changes in the schedule.
