Dolphin Conversations: Philadelphia

  • Date  May 10, 12:15-1:30 p.m.

At Jacksonville University, engaging in meaningful dialogue is at the heart of what we do. It combines ideas and human interaction, and allows us to better understand each other and the world around us. Some of our JU alumni and parents have volunteered to facilitate Dolphin Conversations around the country to bring fellow Dolphins – and our ideas – together.

Dolphin Conversations are designed to be fun! No expertise is required, just a willingness to share and listen. Conversations may focus on a wide range of relevant topics.
