Times Talk, a weekly discussion of current civic and social issues at Georgia College, was instituted by the American Democracy Project at Georgia College in 2005. Since that time faculty, students, staff and community members have shared pizza while engaging in lively dialogue about important issues reported in the New York Times. Times talk has occurred in many places but now claims home each Wednesday at Noon on the second floor of the Russell Library. Times Talk illustrates the values of engaged citizenship embodied by the liberal arts mission of Georgia College. These efforts owe thanks to the American Democracy Project, a multi-campus initiative focused on public higher education’s role in preparing the next generation of informed, engaged citizens for our democracy, and the New York Times, which is available free on campus.
