Keystone Series

The Keystone series begins with the Global Café, where there will be refreshments!

Phase I:

ESE Global Café

Wednesday, March 22

HIKS B853

Doors open @ 5:45 pm, Event begins @ 6:00 pm

Global Café is designed to allow participants to share their knowledge and passion about a subject through facilitated conversations. This year's Global Café will include a concept mapping activity and generation of questions for the Keystone Series Panel Discussion in April. Discussion topics will be holistic in nature and include economic, social, media, environmental, and policy concerns.

Phase II:

Keystone Series Panel Discussion

Tuesday, April 11

PFEN 241

6:00 pm

The Panel Discussion is an all-campus event, bringing together interdisciplinary perspectives on a controversial issue. We're working to bring together a group of experts that will bring their personal insights to a discussion that is meant to encourage critical thinking about this important topic. Panelists will discuss their personal views on Understanding Standing Rock as well as answer questions from the ESE Global Café. Keystone is centered on open discussion that is free from political bias or topic advocacy. It focuses on conversations that encourage critical thinking and respectful exchange to analyze the complexities that are often lost in the national debate.

RSVP for one or both events here.


The ESE Keystone Series is a combination of events that brings ESE students, faculty, and staff together with the broader campus and Lafayette/West Lafayette communities to discuss a current, controversial environmental topic from an interdisciplinary perspective.
