Throughout American history, colleges and universities have been a key to our economic development and social progress. Now the United States is facing serious challenges on both of these fronts. How can higher education best help us handle these challenges and create the society we want? The Citizens Forum will be a conversation/discussion defined broadly as, “How do we work together and repair an ailing society”.
Our three panelists will come at the topic from the perspectives of: community engagement, civic engagement and ethical decision making.
