Lecture Series

One of the cornerstones of our program, the USF School of Architecture & Community Design's Lecture Series introduces students and the Tampa Bay community to a diverse range of ideas and global perspectives. Every semester, architects, urbanists, designers, academics and artists from across the United States and the world speak about their experiences and knowledge.

All lectures are free and open to students and the general public.
