The Great Discussions 2015 series will begin on April 9. Students and community members meet weekly to discuss eight topics. Attendance is limited to ensure that these are discussions, not a lecture series. Each session is 120 minutes, 6:30-8:30 p.m., starting with a short video, then brief remarks by an invited guest (varies each week along with the topic). Those who register for the series will receive a briefing book in advance that provides material for each topic. Links to additional material for each topic are provided below.
