Forum at HACC-Harrisburg Campus to tackle ‘What is education?’

Public invited to attend free event at 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17

HARRISBURG – The philosophical question “What is education?” will be discussed by a HACC panel at 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, on the second floor of McCormick Library on HACC-Harrisburg Campus.
Charles Comer, HACC professor of philosophy, will moderate the free, public program offered by the HACC Philosophy Forum. Panel members will include HACC President John J. “Ski” Sygielski; Trum Simmons, senior professor of English; Kerry Tombs-Harling, dean of curriculum planning and assessment; and Amelia Rundle, associate editor of The Fourth Estate, the campus newspaper.
“Education is at the core of who we are and what we do,” Comer said. “However, this question is not easily answered and deserves thought and discussion. Why we educate and whom we educate are, perhaps central. What, for example, constitutes educational success? Or, what should education’s aim be?”
The panelists will consider these questions and more. Participants are invited to come with questions, thoughts or just to observe. The free, public event is sponsored by the HACC Philosophy Forum. Refreshments will be served.
McCormick Library is on the HACC-Harrisburg Campus at One HACC Drive.
