Rethinking Community is a three-day conference hosted by the Eudaimonia Institute and the Pro Humanitate Institute of Wake Forest University. It is in response to a call by Provost Rogan Kersh, to convene counterparts across higher education to grapple with the effects of living in a society more virtual, diverse, polarized, and global than ever.
During this conference, Wake will bring together scholars, journalists, elected officials, and public intellectuals from across the ideological spectrum for three days of courageous, robust engagement with the animating questions of the university’s academic and political world. This conference is an opportunity to acknowledge, welcome, discuss, and debate differing, often competing, viewpoints with vigor, intensity, and respect.
The Century Foundation is proud to be a supporter of this event and will be livestreaming the following sessions on October 20, 2017:
- 8:45 a.m. – 10:30 a.m: Welcome and Opening Session
