The Public Policy Forum series provides an opportunity for academic, nonprofit, business and government policy practitioners to engage in a dialogue about topics of importance to the region at a location in downtown Baltimore. Public Policy forum topics are grounded in academic research, but selected to appeal to a broad professional audience.
Social Sciences Forums and other events present topics and perspectives of interest to the social sciences community at a location on campus. Lectures are free and open to the public and last approximately one hour, followed by a question and answer period and a reception.
