With the Nov. 4 election approaching, students, faculty and staff are invited to explore different perspectives and share thoughts on three relevant political issues as part of the Civic Dialogue Series.
The series is funded through a $1,000 grant from the Florida Campus Compact, which focuses on helping students develop the values and skills of active citizenship through participation in public and community service.
“We’re hoping to educate students by presenting both sides of some important questions,” says Dr. Jan Lloyd, associate vice president of Student Development, who organized the discussion series. “We want to inspire discussion, engagement and critical thought so students can develop informed opinions about the political process.”
Each hourlong session will begin by allowing each side to make a statement before advancing into open discussion. All participants are encouraged to ask questions, gather information and share their own opinions.
The discussions, all of which take place on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus in the Partnership Center (room UP-1205) at 12:30 p.m., seek to explore the following questions:
Hugh Moore, associate dean for the Center for Business, Management and Entrepreneurship, will moderate the first two discussions, and Dr. Jordan Camenker, program manager for legal studies, will oversee the third. Free food and giveaways are available to the first 30 student participants.
