Upcoming Events


Community Dialougue

Wed., July 20 @ 11am, SF Library Lobby
Student Leadership and Activities will be holding a special Community Dialogue event to discuss the tragic events that have recently taken place. All students, faculty and staff are welcome and encouraged to come and participate.




Times Talks

Times Talks are open conversations about important and controversial issues in the news, and are part of Santa Fe's efforts to promote greater civic engagement on campus. They are an opportunity for students, faculty members, and other members of the college community to sit as equals and exchange views on important issues in a casual, informal, and civil environment. Times Talks are moderated each time by a different volunteer faculty or student facilitator. These events provide a wonderful opportunity to participate in the sort of vigorous and engaging discussion of important issues that is needed in a democracy. Our next session will be held on Wed., July 20 in the SF Libray.
