Forum Event Suggestions
The Rockford University Forum Series presents speakers and performers in a variety of disciplines who have achieved success both nationally and locally, as well as performers of stature in the arts. We present intellectual, social and cultural programs of general interest, especially for a student audience.

Here's the heart of the Forum Series: helping people grow, both intellectually and emotionally. We want speakers and performances that suggest new ideas and new cultural expressions to everyone in the audience, student and faculty alike. And for that growth to happen, the events must be absolutely top-notch, filled with speakers who know how to engage an audience and performers who know how to work a crowd.

How do we find these speakers and performers? A faculty committee does some of the searching, but we also need to know what the campus community wants to experience. By making a suggestion with this form, your suggestion will have a higher chance of being accepted; it suggests some of our core values.

If you don't know the answer to a question, it's okay to skip it--but if you think you can find an answer for us in advance, the committee would appreciate it.
