The Center supports a series of on-campus talks and discussions for Saint Anselm College students by St. A's faculty, faculty from nearby institutions, and community leaders on important ethical issues in our world. Students eat a free, catered dinner and get a chance to interact with professors and community leaders in an informal environment. The purpose of these dinner discussions is to give students and faculty a chance to talk about "big ideas" beyond the constraints of a formal classroom and to contribute to intellectual pluralism and tolerance on campus.
