January 2018, the Veritas Forum will be expanded to two evenings, both in the Performing Arts Center (the PAC). These events are open to students, faculty, and members of the campus community. Due to the historically strong interest on campus, especially among students, we – unfortunately – will not be opening these events up to the wider community. (Faculty members are of course, welcome and encouraged to bring an invited guest from off campus.)
