Crucial Conversations – Paul Susi

Conversation facilitator and activist Paul Susi will lead a discussion on the question, “Does higher education matter?”

Facilitator Susi is an educator, arts administrator and a performing artist. He has worked as a youth counselor and an educator at several Portland nonprofit organizations serving homeless, recovering, post-incarcerated and adjudicated populations. He was recently named artistic director of the Portland Actors Ensemble.

Oregon Humanities states that the goal of the project is to “connect people to ideas and to each other, not to push an agenda or arrive at consensus. We believe that conversation is a powerful medium to invite diverse perspectives, explore challenging questions and strive for just communities.”

Crucial Conversations will be offered once each fall, winter and spring term at Portland Community College Rock Creek. The event is part of the college’s new Crucial Conversation series made possible by the PCC Foundation, Oregon Humanities and PCC supporters Don and Bonnie Blish.

When: Monday, June 4 from 1:30pm to 3:00pm
Where: PCC Rock Creek, Event Center, Building 9 (17705 NW Springville Rd, Portland, OR 97229)

**Parking permits are required and are available at the kiosk located close to the entrance of the Rock Creek Campus.
