Faculty Focus: Annual Colloquium Creates College and Community Curriculum
06.21.13 |
Lebanon Valley College’s emphasis on multidisciplinary study extends well beyond the classroom, with events designed to get students, faculty, and staff to reach beyond their departments in discussion of a broad-reaching topic.

Perhaps the most visible of the College’s extracurricular interdisciplinary programming is its annual Colloquium Series, an integrated collection of guest speakers, roundtable discussions, films, exhibits, and courses that centers on one topic. The 2012–2013 Colloquium Series focused on “HAPPINESS,” concluding a three-part series, “Health, Wealth, and Happiness,” and included a presentation by Pennsylvania Governor and LVC alumnus Thomas W. Corbett ’71.

“The Colloquium is co-curricular and cross-curricular,” said Dr. Robert Valgenti, associate professor of philosophy and chair of the Colloquium Committee. “The idea is to get students and faculty—the whole LVC community—including people in the Annville area, to think about a certain topic and bring their own interests and expertise to bear on that topic. It also gives us the opportunity to bring a wide array of speakers and films to campus that normally wouldn’t be available.”

The 2013–2014 Colloquium theme is “Revolution.” “A lot of our planning has been motivated by the revolutions we’ve seen politically in the Middle East,” Valgenti said. “But we’re also thinking of revolution in terms of technologies and pedagogies—thinking generally about the idea of change and transformation.”

Check back later this summer for more information about the upcoming Colloquium series.
