Discussion Series: What Does It Mean to Be Curious?

Please note: We are currently planning curiosity conversations for fall 2017. We do not have events scheduled for this spring, and are instead working to address the urgency of cultivating curiosity among individuals and groups of people. We are exploring partnerships with community organizations, and look forward to the programming that grows out of these mutually beneficial relationships.

The text below refers to our fall events. Click here for a great Pitt News story on one of our fall conversations!
