Hot Topics Cafes - Spring 2014

HOt topics large

 Hot Topics Café, a partnership between Philosophy in the Public Interest and the Compassion Project programs at NAU, presents new opportunities to engage in civil discussion around timely issues.  The programs are free and all are welcome.  

  Hot Topics Cafes began on the NAU campus, but this year moved to community locations including the Coconino Center for the Arts, the Museum of Northern Arizona, the Sedona Public Library and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Yavapai College in Sedona.   

  NAU students from philosophy, political science, and in the W.A. Franke College of Business prepare informational sheets that give overviews of competing positions and their economic impacts. 

  Hot Topics Cafés provide opportunities for community members to discuss contentious political issues in a civil way. The program is non-partisan and does not endorse positions with respect to any issue discussed. Topics are chosen by a community committee that represents community leaders from a variety of political constituencies and interests.  

  For more information visit www.nau.edu/ppi.

The Hot Topic Cafe is made possible by the Arizona Humanities Council, the McKenzie Endowment for Democracy, and the SBS Compassion Project.
