Douglass Institutes across the System have a number of programs designed to support rich intellectual inquiry and exchange in their communities. From book talks and brown bag lunches to discussion/speaker series and symposia, the colloquia create safe spaces for multidisciplinary, multicultural, intergenerational learning and discussion on a broad array of topics related to diversity, inclusivity, and social justice.
