In The Library
The “In The Library” series creates a partnership with academic and cultural literature as it explores various publications. Publications may be from peer reviewed articles, academic journals or even social media. This series aims to create healthy dialogue that addresses the many personal and social issues experienced by society. For each event, a facilitator will be selected to guide the discussion. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to engage with the selection before each event in order to bring a dynamic view to the conversation. For more information, contact William Britto.
