Salon Forum

We continue the Commission’s series of lunchtime ‘salons’—a chance to hear a speaker or address a topic relevant to the future of PSR.  The Commission will provide food for lunch, gratis. All of these salons take place in our Eighth Day Workspace (formerly known as Holbrook 134).

This week features PSR faculty members Horace Griffin, Bernie Schlager and Jay Johnson, talking about potential expansions of PSR’s expertise in LGBTQ Studies; and the Commission on Strategic Direction’s consultant Michael Leahey, describing the process of financial modeling for PSR and other organizations undertaking renewal. A full schedule of upcoming salons and topics is on the calendar here.
