Join the Polymathic Scholars Honors Program for their 17th annual Chautauqua Event.


Chautauqua is an annual tradition bringing together speakers from interdisciplinary fields to explore a topic of contemporary interest. This year’s theme is “Lessons in Love”, featuring UT faculty across the disciplines of Biology, Sociology, Greek Studies and Epistemology.
