Krost Symposium

TLU's Premier Academic Event

Each year, TLU hosts the Krost Symposium to highlight an important, timely topic as it relates to the campus and larger state-wide, national, and even global discussions.

Throughout the last decade, topics have covered everything from the environment and canine cognition to mass incarceration and gender-based violence.

The event typically occurs each fall and spans several days, featuring a keynote lecture, guest speakers, master classes, and discussion panels. All events are open to the public and all faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to attend.
