Course detail: KU Mini College

Mini College was created by the University in 2009 as an educational event held each June for KU alumni, their spouses and other inquisitive adults. In 2016, the University was forced to stop sponsoring Mini College due to budget cuts. Since then, it has been an all-volunteer effort by a small group of dedicated alumni in cooperation with the University. Until the pandemic, it allowed attendees to come to the Lawrence campus to listen to lectures by excellent professors and participate in tours and discussions. Mini College this year is going virtual. Some or KU's best educators will present two thought-provoking lectures per week online for the first four Tuesdays in June. Topics will include the Dead Sea Scrolls, learning from disaster, the creation of Google Earth, and abolishing the Electoral College. Most or all of the talks will be given live, with opportunities for questions and answers. The presentations also will be recorded for later viewing by those who miss the original lectures.
