New Iowa Lyceum Publication


A few of the Lyceum graduate student organizers--Danielle Colburn, Cassie Finley, and Joe Glover--published a chapter on the value of pre-college philosophy and the Iowa Lyceum in Intentional Disruption: Expanding Access to Pre-College Philosophy. Our chapter can be read here, or the book can be purchased directly from Vernon Publishing here

2022 Lyceum


The 2022 Iowa Lyceum will be held both in-person and over Zoom so that we can continue providing access to the program to international and non-Iowa students, while also providing the in-person experience to those in the Iowa City area.
