Welcome to the Iowa Lyceum!
Introducing pre-college students to philosophy and critical thinking.
We are beginning preparation for the 2022 Iowa Lyceum! Click here or go to the 2021 Lyceum tab to see about this past year's Lyceum.
We are planning on holding a hybrid version of the Lyceum in 2022! For anyone in the Iowa City area, we will be hosting the Lyceum in-person on campus at the University of Iowa. Meanwhile, we will also be hosting a parallel online Lyceum open to anyone both domestic and internationally.
If you have any questions about our program, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org!
We would like to thank the following institutions for supporting the Philosophy Lyceum at the University of Iowa:
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Iowa
The Department of Philosophy at the University of Iowa
