Student Discussion Sessions following Reimagining Public Safety Series
The Student Discussion Sessions will take place on Wednesdays at 6:30pm ET following the Friday programming as part of the Heinz Reimagining Public Safety Series.
These student-led discussion sessions will focus deeper into issues discussed in the programming on the preceding Friday, give students a venue to highlight and reflect on key topics that were discussed, point out issues or points of view that may not have been discussed, and participate in an open, safe, and inclusive conversation. Ideally, what comes out of these sessions is both a better understanding of the issues discussed, recommendations on future programming Heinz should organizing, as well as a list of micro/mini courses and capstone projects that can be created next semester to build on the current programs. These sessions will also help identify students who may be interested in participating in future Heinz programming on these topics. Students from any department or college are welcome to attend.
These sessions are student-led and focused on having an open and safe environment where everyone feels comfortable sharing their opinions and discussing potentially difficult topics.
This session is for CMU Students ONLY.
