Sponsor annual debate on topic of political and social import
The ideal of an inclusive community is not one where everyone agrees with one another, but rather one where people have the skills to disagree with each other constructively and respectfully. Such skills are the hallmark of a liberal arts education. To exemplify their importance to our community, Dartmouth will sponsor an annual debate on a topic of political and/or social import. The debate will feature experts who bring a broad range of perspectives to the issue. Nominations for each year's topic will be solicited from faculty, staff, and students.
