Registration for the Clarke’s Virtual Speaker Series

​Because of limitations regarding the size of gatherings on the CMU campus during the fall semester, there will be no in-person presentations in the Park Library Building. The speakers' presentations will only be available online. The presentations will be made available via Webex software, which allows attendees to view the presentation online or simply listen to the presentation through a regular telephone call.

Registration is required for each event. There is no deadline for registering for any event – you can register even after the presentation has started.

To register for a presentation, click on the event title below (visit our Exhibits and Events page for full details about each presentation). After you click on the title, you will be taken to the Webex Events registration page for that specific event. To register for multiple presentations, you must sign up for each event one by one.

Please contact us at or 989.774.3352 for assistance or more information, including information about connecting to the presentation via telephone.
