Life in the Face of Death

February 23, 2023

7:30pm ET

Emerson Hall 305

Harvard University

How should we live in light of human mortality?

Death can often seem remote to us, particularly but not exclusively for those of us who are young college students. Should we leave it that way? Or should we be grappling with the reality of our death -- and, if so, why? Beyond our own lives, it seems like every day we turn on the news and see headlines about human tragedy. Sometimes, this tragedy hits close to home. How should we think about and process death around us – in the news, in the world, in our social circles? Does this differ from the way we should grapple with our own death?

What's the Point of Education? A conversation on education, purpose, and success post-COVID

April 14, 2022

7:30pm ET

Veritas Virtual Platform Livestream

This discussion between Dean Khurana and Professor Hill aims to make sense of what education means in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Bringing their unique expertise and world views, the speakers will engage in a thought-provoking discussion around questions that directly shape our four years at Harvard, and beyond. Such questions include: Is a college degree simply a means to an end, or is it something more? What role should the university have in allowing students the freedom to seek Truth and further their worldview?
