Schreyer Global Discussion Series Available For All Penn State Students

The Schreyer Honors College has announced that it will open its “World in View” discussion series up to all Penn State students.

The “World in View” series was originally introduced in October 2020 exclusively for Schreyer scholars. These discussions have a primary focus on highlighting global views and allow students to gain perspective on issues that they are unaware of in their local communities.

“We believe that all Penn State students could similarly benefit by attending these events,” said Schreyer Honors College Associate Dean Keefe B. Manning. “The World in View series takes those relationships a step further by introducing experts from around the world who add valued perspectives and knowledge to these important, timely discussions and expose students to ideas or information they may not have considered before.”

All discussions are an hour long, but some discussions have two parts, which are split between multiple days. Most presentations feature one speaker from Penn State and another speaker from an international institution who has a closer connection to the topic of discussion.

New “World in View” events are constantly added to the ongoing series. Upcoming topics include discussions on “Biodiversity Preservation and Management in Costa Rica” on March 16 and “Migration and Democracy” on March 22.

Students can view the topics of upcoming discussions and sign up on Schreyer’s website. There are a limited number of spots for each presentation, so students are required to sign up for any discussions they wish to attend so they can receive a link.
