The 2024 Faith, Reason, and World Affairs Symposium, “Flourishing Futures: Nurturing Children for Civic Engagement,” will be Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Childhood development and education face critical challenges, but solutions exist that can significantly impact children's lives. This symposium will explore child development with the larger context of civic engagement, aiming to provide participants with actionable insights. The event will highlight national research and expert perspectives, while emphasizing a strong regional focus. It will serve as a catalyst for engaging dialogues among key figures in K-12 education, nonprofit organizations, business, healthcare, and civic life.

Symposium Planning Committee Co-Chairs: Dr. Michael J. Chan, Vice President for Mission and Inclusion, and Dr. Darrell Stolle, Chair/Professor of Education
