Join the conversation as part of the Issues to Action series. Students, faculty, and staff are welcome. These discussions are a way to get students more engaged with local, regional, national, and/or international matters.
The Issues to Action series (formerly Campus Conversations and New York Times Talks) bring students, faculty, and staff together to become more engaged around the issues they care about, through meaningful conversations, resource sharing, and the creation of next steps towards meaningful action. Attendees are encouraged to be active participants in the conversation, as well as have an open mind and be respectful of other’s thoughts, opinions, and ideas. Unless otherwise noted, all Issues to Action Series events are virtual gatherings, and registration is required to receive the link to join.
