In line with its value of civic engagement, Elon University developed the Elon University Writers Syndicate to provide newspapers with guest columns authored by experts in their fields on topics of interest to residents of North Carolina and beyond.
The syndicate is managed by the Elon University News Bureau in coordination with faculty contributors.
Viewpoints shared by this syndicate are those of the authors and not of Elon University.

Professor of Sociology Tom Arcaro writes in this column for the Elon University Writers Syndicate that advances in artificial intelligence require regulation.
