Daring Dialogues


This event series features guest speakers who, from a platform of expertise in the field, challenge commonly-held perspectives about social issues, ways of handling ethical dilemmas, and more. They speak boldly about their views and will encourage dialogue with the audience after the event presentation.

Each event is held in a "brown bag" lunch setting where attendees bring their own lunch and drinks are provided.

10/20/2011 Panel Discussion "Cultivating Our Future Leaders."

2/2/2012 "Is Facebook the New Resume?" Dr. Amber Hutchins, Assistant Professor in the KSU Department of Communication, will discuss the ethical implications of using social media. For instance, as users of social media willingly volunteer a significant amount of personal information, employers are using sites like Facebook and Google to learn more about potential candidates. Students seeking internships and jobs have been advised to "clean up" their posts and to take charge of their online brand, but some struggle with managing their professional and personal lives online. Similarly, professors question how much of their personal lives to divulge on social media, considering that the audience could likely include colleagues, students, and their parents. How can we protect our privacy and remain authentic and transparent in the social media sphere? Open to the campus community and the general public. 12:30 - 2:00 p.m., Leadership Room, KSU Student Center.

3/1/2012 "Transportation and Regional Planning Issues" Panel discussants Dr. Robert Paul, KSU Director of Sustainability and Professor of Biology; Attorney Michael Sloan, KSU Associate Legal Council; and Elizabeth Tindel, Director of KSU Parking Operations will discuss transportation issues germane to the campus. Open to the campus community and general public, the panel discussion will be the prelude to the Regional Conference on the State of Intergovernmental Cooperation in Northwest Georgia to begin immediately following the panel discussion. 4:30 - 6:00 p.m., Room 300, KSU Center.
