Alverno Forum

logo for Alverno Forum created in 2014

The Alverno Forum invites the Greater Milwaukee community to engage in respectful dialogue and common effort for the public good. A variety of topics — all relevant to local needs and committed to Alverno’s philosophy of seeking broad perspective — are addressed during the school year, and each Forum is led by one of Alverno’s four schools: Arts & Sciences, Business, Education and Nursing. 

Join us for lively evening discussions, free and open to the public! Register below.
