CEPA Calendar of Events

The College of Education and Public Affairs collaborates with community leaders and organizations to address key challenges facing Northeast Ohio and beyond. We facilitate this through the exchange of ideas and fostering a thriving academic environment that values thoughtful public debate. Together with our partners CEPA offers a variety of public events annually, including forums, morning briefings, roundtables, conferences, gallery exhibits, and more. Most of our events are recorded. Visit our Calendar Archive for past events.  

Upcoming events are listed below, along with significant holidays, and important dates by semester. To see what is happening University-wide, please see the University calendar. Please note that not all CEPA events appear on the University calendar.
