Penn State Mont Alto Campus Symposiums are a monthly panel discussion of a current controversial issue from a variety of perspectives. Panelists engage in respectful, but often animated, discussion with each other and the audience.
Those audiences include both the campus community and the community at large. Symposium discussions are not only an opportunity to think about issues facing society but also an opportunity to practice productive discourse and civil disagreement.
