Pennoni Panels: Is There a Place for Politics in the Classroom?

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

3:00 PM-5:00 PM

The college campus while being a place for ideas and innovation, has also been a site of tension: conflicting ideologies, growing pains with surrounding communities, and debate concerning higher education’s purpose. From free speech to counter protests politics has always been central to a university ether. In times of high tension, however, and a split national identity, what roles does and should administrators, faculty members, and students play when it comes to engaging with politics on campus and in classrooms? Panelists from various areas will discuss the complexities of a such a question and elaborate on higher education’s potential future as a site of activism.
