Dialogue and Discussion

Times Talk

Students read a New York Times article and discuss with peers and mentors.

The Times Talk program is a series of discussions focused on current events in the areas of politics, democratic engagement, and diversity, equity, and inclusion. Each week, an article from The New York Times is selected as a basis for discussion. All interested students, faculty and staff are encouraged to join the conversation each week.

All FSU students, faculty, and staff have free access to the New York Times online. To register for the free service, visit our New York Times Subscription Program.

Town Halls

Students share their voices at the Town Hall meetings

The Office of Civic Engagement has partnered with the J. Glenn Beall, Jr. Institute for Public Affairs, the Political Science Department, and the Student Government Association to host a series of town hall meetings each semester that brings students together for meaningful conversations about their local, state, and national governments. These conversations range in topics from how the economy affects our students and higher education, to issues regarding foreign policy. These programs are focused on educating students on the democratic process and how they can get involved to make a difference.
