Royals Back Together

Dear Schemelites:

Is the pandemic behind us? Is this a fresh start? It is easier to ask such questions than to answer them. We come to you full of hope that this fall we can meet together in person and enjoy the special pleasure of learning together. There is much to discuss on the local, national and global levels, and times ranging from ancient Greece to tomorrow. I trust that you will find food for thought-- the opportunity to listen, to ask questions and agree and disagree with speakers. That is The Schemel Forum.

We aim always to “bring the world to Scranton,” as it is increasingly important to know the world--and increasingly possible to do that. Technology has made it possible for us to know what is happening when it’s happening and where it’s happening and also to turn the clock back to ancient times.

Our courses offer the wisdom of our own distinguished faculty and in our world affairs luncheon seminars we feature historians, journalists and activists who might come from any place in the world.

Over these past years The Schemel Forum has gained the reputation of being the go-to place for learning together.

Thank you for being with us as we learn from our faculty, our speakers and each other.

Warm regards,

Sondra Myers
Director of the Schemel Forum
The University of Scranton
