President Hilary L. Link is pleased to introduce the Allegheny College President’s Lecture Series on Social Justice, which pairs Allegheny faculty and prominent Allegheny alumni scholars and professionals to discuss the intensifying social justice issues facing our world. These issues continue to amplify as the world becomes increasingly complex and interconnected challenges demand new and creative approaches.
Our fast-changing world presents interwoven challenges that need the creative problem-solvers that Allegheny prepares — multidimensional thinkers who consider different viewpoints, integrate knowledge across disciplines, and collaborate across vastly different backgrounds and perspectives.
The President’s Lecture Series will be held monthly through May 2021. Future topics include immigration, global health, and other subjects/issues.
