THE MISSION OF THE CENTER

 

The Center for the Study of Transformative Lives exists to inspire young persons and public audiences through the study of individuals who have made a difference in the world—persons of conscience, creativity, courage, and compassion who have advanced human rights, equality, and personal and societal flourishing. Through teaching, research, and public programming the Center serves as a place to study and honor exemplars from past and present in their context in search of sorely needed wisdom for today and tomorrow.


UPCOMING  EVENTS:  

OCTOBER 2, 2018

FREDERICK DOUGLASS – PROPHET OF FREEDOM

The Center welcomes back author, David Blight, to discuss the definitive, dramatic biography of the most important African-American of the nineteenth century: Frederick Douglass, the escaped slave who became the greatest orator of his day and one of the leading abolitionists and writers of the era.

RSVP will begin in the fall.
