The event: Students, faculty, staff, and local community members will be carefully selected to discuss a chosen topic in an open, educational, and respectful forum to benefit Elon University and the wider community.
Format: Our moderator will open the evening and facilitate the conversation beginning at 7:00pm. After opening remarks we will hear from our four invited panelists.
During the program the audience will be encouraged to ask into a microphone or write any questions they would like to have addressed to continue the conversation.
By 8:15 p.m. the moderator will close the conversation and invite all participants and audience members to continue sharing their views informally at a reception following the event.
When: Community Connections is held three times per year. Once in the fall, in January and in the spring.
Topic: Topics decided in the fall through voting at Elon University's College Coffee and through a Times-News poll.
Media: This event will be covered by the Burlington Times-News, and Elon University's WSOE and ELN.
Why: It is the duty and privilege of Elon University and local community members to come together and discuss important issues in an open and respectful manner. The intention of this event is to bring together thought leaders in meaningful debate and dialogue.
