UNLV offers three lecture or discussion series free to the general public.

The University Forum Lecture Series features speakers on a variety of subjects which run the gamut from "Climate History of the Earth", "The Mystery of Labryrinths," "Screening the Mafia" to "Time-Loops, Superstrings, and Other Weird Stuff."

You will find something for every taste and every interest. The Forum Lecture Series is offered two to four times a month, at 7:30 pm, at the Barrick Museum Auditorium. You can check the UNLV website for full details: liberalarts.unlv.edu.  (Pls note that the site may state "I’m sorry, there are no upcoming events." The fall semester schedule is not posted until late summer.  The program is not expected to be cut in spite of the deep budget cuts for 2009-2010.)

The Barrick Lecture Series, funded through a grant by Marjorie Barrick, presents nationally and internationally known speakers and are often presented in round table discussion format. Two or three events are scheduled annually, usually commencing at 7:30 pm. The Barrick Lecture Series is held at the Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall at UNLV.

The Black Mountain Institute is a think tank for writers and artists founded under the vision of Carol Harter, former UNLV President.  The BMI is composed of the Forum on Contemporary Cultures (BMI), the Cities of Asylum and the International Institute of Modern Letters. Its mission is to bring together thinkers from all cultural and political perspectives.

All three of the UNLV Lecture Series are open and free to the public. The University Forum Lecture Series and the Black Mountain Institute require no reservations, while the Barrick Lecture Series requires advance acquisition of free tickets with limitation of two per person.
