The Janus Forum

The Janus Forum will provide 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.
