Free Community Lecture Series

Spartan Talks is a free faculty led community lecture series similar to TED talks. Presentations will highlight some of the great educational endeavors taking place at CNCC and our communities while sharing useful training and knowledge. The format may vary slightly based on subject matter and may include panels for Q & A, family-oriented presentations, or audience interaction.

The location of the talks will rotate between the Rangely and Craig campuses based on participating faculty and subject matter. The presentation will also be broadcast live to the alternative campus and will be available online. The entire series will culminate in March with a Spartan Student Symposium. The symposium will showcase CNCC student’s work in various arts, science, and leadership activities.
