Arkansas Splendor by Paul KethleyInspiring Curiosity:
Now entering our 11th season, the Collegiate Peaks Forum Series brings to The Upper Arkansas Valley nationally and internationally known speakers schooled in Philosophy, Religion and Science.

This exciting lecture series is guaranteed to stir your imagination and create new insights, so mark your calendar now. Each lecture will be followed by an enlightening audience question and answer session. All lectures are FREE—no registration or tickets are required.

Thank you to all of our contributors and volunteers who allow the Forum Series to occur. Enjoy!

History:
The Collegiate Peaks Forum began as a small group of intellectually curious citizens in Chaffee County, Colorado, who determined that their lives could be enhanced by investigating the challenging questions raised by the interrelationship of philosophy, religion and science through academic stimulation, related discussions and their ensuing insights. To that end, notable speakers and scholars active in these disciplines would be invited to speak, offer their published works and engage in constructive dialogue. In 2010 the Forum Series expanded its region to The Upper Arkansas Valley.

Mission:
The mission of Collegiate Peaks Forum Series is to facilitate the intellectual enrichment of The Upper Arkansas Valley residents and their visitors by sponsoring events featuring nationally recognized persons schooled in philosophy, religion or science and hosting other community discussion activities.

Vision:
The Collegiate Peaks Forum Series is a bridge facilitating personal enrichment and constructive dialogue among individuals and groups to which they belong. It seeks to stimulate intellectual curiosity, stir the imagination and engage our diverse citizenry through lectures, study and discussion groups. It is committed to communicating with integrity, listening openly and honoring the differences of its participants. It envisions that a deeper awareness of all aspects of the Creator and available spiritual resources will emerge, that superior structures of thought and understanding will develop and that more effective models of personal and community action will occur.
