The College of Complexes is a loosely based organization for speakers and those interested in learning. The name is derived from "a psychiatric term for repressed ideas that compel expression." This organization was founded in Chicago in 1951. According to the group's literature, it claims to be a "Playground for people who think". The primary function of this group is to organize weekly forums where speakers, representing diverse points of view, will speak. Following the speech, audience members are invited to comment on the speech and each is allowed a maximum of 5 minutes to respond. The topics covered in this forum include, but are not restricted to philosophy, political issues, war resistance, the environment, Marxism, marijuana and religious issues.

Currently, the College of complexes holds these forums at the Lincoln Restaurant, 4008 N. Lincoln Avenue, in Chicago.

It hosts weekly forums on Saturday evenings.
