Core Forums 2016-2017

Core Forums are shared intellectual experiences that are open to all Elon students, faculty, and staff. They address important interdisciplinary topics and allow community conversations about key global issues. Each Forum is repeated four times to allow any Elon student to attend, and to allow COR 110 sections to attend as a class.
