SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- How can higher education and the arts have an impact on the important issues facing our region? That will be the topic of a planning meeting and reception on Tuesday at Grace Episcopal Church in Syracuse.
The meeting is hosted by Imagining America, a national organization of nearly 100 colleges and universities, headquartered at Syracuse University. The co-directors of Imagining America announced that Tuesday's discussion will be the first of several events leading up to the group's national conference in Syracuse in October. They believe there is room for higher education to have a role in addressing our region's issues.
"We think that this effort to bolster higher education toward a civic mindedness, an understanding that the continuum of knowledge is broad and we can enter it as scholars of backgrounds of the arts or humanities or any of the core disciplines," said Timothy K. Eatman, Co-Director, Imagining America.
The event starts at 4 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church and is open to the public.
