The January Series

January Series banner

Welcome to the January Series of Calvin University

The January Series cultivates deep thought and conversations about important issues of the day in order to inspire cultural renewal and make us better global citizens in God's world.

Our long tradition of offering a free 15-day lecture series continues, but 2021 will look different.

This year the January Series will be a completely virtual experience. You can watch each presentation (12:30 to 1:30 p.m. EST) on your own devices in your own location, or you can gather at one of our small remote sites available across the continent. And if you can’t join us live, the presentation will be available until midnight, so don’t delay. We are only able to permanently archive a handful of this year’s presentations on our website, so it will be important to plan ahead and watch the day-of.

The January Series is completely free, but you will be asked to fill out a brief form before viewing the presentation. You can also sign up now to receive a daily email reminder with a link for viewing that day’s presentation. Or, beginning at noon the day of, simply click on the Watch Now button. You’ll be asked to fill out a simple form before you are redirected to the event.

Click here to watch today!

In the meantime, read this article, check out the 2021 lineup of speakers, print this visual schedule for your fridge and mark January 6-26, 2021 on your calendar. See you virtually!
