SMTC-WPSU TV/FM Lobby Talks

Lobby Talks offer a forum for civic dialogue and create a meeting place for university and community expertise and experiences to be shared in vibrant and meaningful ways. Leaders and experts across disciplines are invited to engage in open public discourse and partner with colleges and departments on campus to extend research and service beyond the walls of the university. The Science, Medicine and Technology in Culture program and Penn State Public Broadcasting will bring to this forum two important conversations in February 2006.
