One Day University is coming to the Palm Beach County Convention Center this Saturday.
In its 10th year, One Day University offers a single-day series of lectures on topics of interest, but done in engaging and entertaining ways. Think of it as a humanaities education in seven hours.
One Day U’s president and founder, Steven Schragis said previous presenters include professors from Yale, Stanford, Brown, Harvard, Columbia, Duke, Dartmouth, Chicago, Michigan, and dozens of others. He said the goal is to bring in presenters whose lectures are draw standing-room-only crowds and then task them with presenting a one-session, highlight-reel version of their most oversubscribed courses.

- The Civil War and Abraham Lincoln: What’s Fact and What’s Fiction? by Louis Masur of Rutgers University
- Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness by Catherine Sanderson of Amherst College
