The 2019-20 series
Our 2019-20 Student Village Square Series

The Student Village Square at Broward College – a political forum for students, by students – provides a safe and engaging space for civic engagement on diverse matters of local, state, and national importance. Much like Broward College’s Village Square, the Student Village Square aims to help maintain factual accuracy on diverse issues, and cultivate dispassionate, reasoned dialogue but for the College’s student body. The topics of the Student Village Square are learning-centered, that is, aimed at enhancing the curriculum of the College.

Our events are free and open to the public. We invite you to join us for our upcoming events!
