Antioch College to Host Forum on 'Establishing Community Norms'

YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio – January 13, 2011 – A task force reporting to Antioch College President Mark Roosevelt on community and community governance at the College will host a public forum titled "Establishing Community Norms" at 8:00 p.m., Friday, January 21.

The forum will be the culmination of a two-day meeting of the group that first convened last summer to create for the incoming class a framework for life in community on the campus in Yellow Springs.

Founded in 1850 as a residential liberal arts college, Antioch College earned an international reputation for its rigorous undergraduate curriculum, trendsetting cooperative work program and pioneering system of community governance that involved students and faculty in the governing of the institution.

Antioch College alumni and the Yellow Springs community are invited to participate in what promises to be a lively discourse moderated by Al Denman, an Antioch College emeritus professor of philosophy who chairs the task force.
