The forum, which is part of the College’s 2012 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, “The Content of our Character,” begins with remarks by Provost Carol Folt, the Dartmouth Professor of Biological Sciences. Daniel Noah Moses, director of the Seeds of Peace Educators’ Program, will also speak at the event.
The forum is open to the public, and guests can attend individual sessions or the entire program. The three 50-minute sessions will be held at 12:30, 1:30, and 2:30 p.m. in Kemeny and Haldeman Halls, with multiple students presenting concurrently.
