A brief description of the event(s):

The Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues is a campus department that invites scholars, professionals, and activists to campus in order to address prescient social issues. This year the theme is Thought for Food, and monthly speakers have come to address a variety of topics covering sustainable agriculture and the related food system, such as environmental toxicity of pesticides and the health and ethics of meat.

Students are involved in all aspects of Clarke Forum activities: designing, planning, producing and broadcasting programs. Much of the Forum’s day-to-day program implementation is in the hands of its Student Project Managers. Students gain valuable work experience and useful skills at the Forum.
