PEN Talks

We all have unique experiences that shape who we are and how we see the world. Whether those be from birth, from our families, or from society. With those diverse experiences, we can learn from one another and come to understand people who are different. The purpose of PEN Talks is to provide an opportunity for students to share their perspectives and stories with fellow students. It also gives other students the chance to learn more about people who are not the same as them.  They are held as a panel of students who are asked questions that are screened beforehand in front of a live audience. It is a moment to come together, to learn from one another, and become more unified as a student body and children of God.  

Mission Statement
In an effort to assist any who may feel poor among us, the PEN talk program will provide an experience where all can benefit from a culture of inclusion, civility, and mutual understanding.
