Learn about engineering and design from one of the leading edge thinkers in science and technology.


Each year PCC Library distributes a limited number of free tickets to the Linus Pauling Memorial Lectures (aka Science and Technology Lectures) on behalf of Academic and Student Affairs (ASA). Pick up tickets at the Cascade, Rock Creek, Southeast, and Sylvania library checkout desks. Tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students can pick up one ticket to any lecture starting two weeks before that lecture. Starting one week before a lecture, remaining tickets will be distributed to requesting students, faculty and staff. 

All lectures take place at the First Congregational Church (1126 SW Park Avenue, Portland, OR) and begin at 7:00pm.
