Issues to Action Series

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.
