As a service to the community,
all CIS events are free and open to the public.
For over 20 years the Critical Issues Symposium (CIS) has been
an integral part of the Hope College academic landscape. A committee
of faculty, staff, and students, in consultation with President
Bultman, select one topic to focus on each year. Hope College takes
this academic endeavor seriously enough to cancel classes for one
day each fall in order to allow the campus community to fully participate
in examining the topic at hand. CIS has sponsored international
leaders in a variety of fields, but also calls on the resources
of the West Michigan and Hope College communities to provide input
on our discussions.
