6@6 Lecture Series is a community lecture series sponsored by Northern Kentucky University’s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement. Think of this as your chance to go to college, minus the tuition, the morning classes and the pressure of grades.
Six pm – Six dollars
This series is better than ever with new additions like Six@Six- Plus One, Six@Six- 2.0 and Six@Six- Beyond the Lecture. For the very first time, Baker Hunt Art & Cultural Center, the Campbell County Library- Carrico/ Fort Thomas Branch and The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County- Main Library are hosting lectures. Once again this year, Northern Kentucky University’s state-of-the-art Rieveschl Digitorium in Griffin Hall is the site for the special guest lecture with the Associated Press.
Six@Six- Plus One
We are excited to offer an addition lecture this year with NKU’s new president, Geoffrey Mearns. His path was anything but typical of a career in academic administration; his professional life began as a federal prosecutor. President Mearns’ Six@Six lecture will focus on his experience as a prosecutor during the Oklahoma City bombing trials.
The Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement is excited to announce that this year’s Six@Six lecture series will satisfy the community’s ongoing thirst for knowledge by expanding to offer Six@Six 2.0. We are excited to showcase the outstanding research and creative work of NKU undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates to the community.
