Be Informed Series


The Be Informed Series serves as a forum for interdisciplinary learning in a safe and comfortable environment. Students and others are encouraged to attend the sessions to discuss the latest issues in our society with a view toward using their knowledge from the various professional schools to construct ideas to solve problems and develop solutions. Sessions are led by experts on the topics discussed. Various forms of teaching are used to tap into how students learn. Strategies such as documentary films, scholarly experts who form a panel, and engaging speakers facilitate our discussions. We welcome suggestions for topics and comments on the sessions.
