OnBoard is a grass-roots project that seeks to build a transportation network using the empty seats in our cars. It looks a little like hitchhiking, but includes safety features, directional signaling, driver incentives and organizational support. University Forum is sponsored by Ecumenical Campus Ministries. This program is held each Wednesday during the Spring and Fall semesters at the ECM Center. The presentations are free and open to the University and Lawrence communities. Every presentation begins at 12:00 noon, and usually includes a brief question and answer period before concluding at 1:00 p.m. We also serve an optional lunch at 11:30am for $6.50 ($3.50 for students) The University-Community forum has been bringing together the KU and Lawrence communities since the 1940s. This program is a series of presentations by faculty, students and community members to educate and facilitate dialogue on ideas and events that shape our society.
