The series consists of four discussions led by Centre faculty and staff over lunch in the Carnegie Club. The series will be held the first Tuesday of each month from noon to 1 p.m. You may choose to register for $10 per session or you may subscribe to the entire series for $35.

The series begins Sept. 3, the first day of the fall term, with Eric Mount's discussion, "The Common Good as Greased Pig." Mount, Centre's Rodes Professor Emeritus of Religion, will talk about a three-year project that he and 15 other scholars have been working on.
Vice President and Dean of Student Life Randy Hays will speak Oct. 1 with a look at how life has changed for today's students on everything from technology to social issues.
On Nov. 5, Phyllis Passariello, Centre associate professor of anthropology, will discuss how the devotion to the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico parallels the devotion to the revolutionary Che Guevara in Cuba.
The series concludes on Dec. 3 with President John Roush's "Leadership: What We Know and What We Don't." Roush says "too many believe that leadership is all art and no science." He will show that men and women can learn to be better leaders.
