Hinckley Institute Forums

Hinckley Forums are held in the Hinckley Caucus Room located in Gardner Commons in the Hinckley Offices, Room 2018 (map).

During the spring and fall semesters, the Hinckley Institute produces and hosts forums featuring local, national, and global activists, lobbyists, thinkers, and political leaders. Past forum guests include major figures, such as Bill Clinton, Dolores Huerta, Mitt Romney, and Thomas Friedman. They are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.

The Hinckley Institute does not endorse the views expressed during any Hinckley Forums nor should the opinions expressed during Hinckley Forums be understood to be the views of the Hinckley Institute.
