Let’s Talk about:
(Current Issues Series)

The Brown Center for Leadership & Service presents Let’s Talk About: What is the “American Identity”?

In an increasingly connected and diverse world, the art of conversation and civil discourse is vital. Join us as we explore how to tackle these difficult conversations across difference. Become part of an engaging discussion between student, faculty & politician whose perspectives span definitions of the “American Identity”. We will then join in guided small group discussions focused on our own narratives and the implications for our UF community.
