Community Seminars are special opportunities for  community members to read and discuss seminal  works in the same unique manner as do our students. Seminars are discussion based and small in size in order to ensure spirited dialogue. There are topics to pique every interest, and for many participants the discussion-based learning model is an entirely new experience.
