We will announce the 2014-2015 Festival of Ideas events soon. Please check back for updates. If you have questions or would like to suggest a speaker, email us at FestivalofIdeas@mail.wvu.edu or leave a note on our Facebook page.
Festival of Ideas was created in 1995 by President Emeritus David C. Hardesty, Jr. It was inspired by events he organized as WVU’s student body president in the 1960s. Today, the lecture series spans the academic year and brings a diverse group of newsmakers, public figures and thought leaders – along with WVU’s own superstars – to engage the campus community in important issues of the day.
