More than 100 years supporting free speech

Throughout our 125-year existence, Wichita State University has stood in strong support of freedom of expression in speech, thought and deed.

The Forum Board Lecture Series, originally established in 1937 as the Student Forum and discontinued in 2002, brought in over that time more than 500 nationally and internally known personalities and thought leaders, including major historical figures from all points on the political and academic spectrum. That legacy has been revived with the establishment of the Craig W. Barton Speaker Series, which debuts in April 2022.
