2018–19 theme
The Common Good

Our speakers will examine critical topics that impact the world we share, such as the environment and ecology, economic disparity, mental health and incarceration, and technology and ethics.

The series will provide audiences with a variety of perspectives on how the common good has shaped—and sometimes failed to shape—our shared social, political, cultural, and ethical history, how it is working or not working in today’s society, and how it might contribute to and strengthen human identity and society in the years to come.
