Citizens who are skeptical, demand evidence and examine different sources bolster democracy. Lawrence Krauss, director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University, will give a keynote address and participate in a question and answer session.

Join in the conversation via CarletonAlumni using #HereforGood. These gatherings are a chance to reflect on Carleton’s founding mandate to give back, providing citizens with the social and common goods of education and opportunity. Together, we are Here for Good.
