The Janus Forum

The Janus Forum provides a place for members of the community to come together and discuss opposing views freely and passionately. We provide a forum where students can explore the multitude of views that exist, and then arrive at their own opinions.

The Janus Forum is a catalyst for developing timely, interesting, and rigorous discussion of public affairs. The Janus Forum is sponsored by The Thomas W. Smith Project on Liberty, Democracy and Citizenship; the Miami University Department of Political Science and the Office of Diversity Affairs. It is made possible through the generous support of The Thomas W. Smith (Miami ’50) Foundation.

The Fall 2019 Janus Forum was held on Wednesday, October 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the Wilks Theater in the Armstrong Student Center. Reception follows in the Pavilion.

No Admission Charge — Ticket Required Open to the Public — Limited Seating

Tickets are available at the Miami University Box Office in the Campus Avenue Building (513) 529-3200.
