Cazenovia Forum regularly hosts a free public affairs series that offers Cazenovians and Central New Yorkers an opportunity to hear recognized experts present their perspectives on a variety of key issues and engage in thoughtful discussion.

Given the '23 spring semester closure of Cazenovia College, Cazenovia Forum would like to extend a note of deep appreciation to the College for their commitment and support since our inception in 2006. Many of our events have taken place at the College's Catherine Cummings Theatre over the past 17 years. Going forward, please continue to check our website for details regarding upcoming programs and presentation venues.
