What Not To Miss At CU's 2014 Conference On World Affairs
Billed as the conference on “everything conceivable,” the Conference on World Affairs begins Monday, April 7. The annual event at the University of Colorado, Boulder includes 200 events that pretty much cover the gamut.
“We have ambassadors, and CEOs, scientists, foreign affairs experts, political insiders, storytellers, musicians; it’s a collection of really impressive people in all fields,” said conference director and CU professor Jim Palmer.
The 2014 keynote speaker is U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.
