Common Grounds Conversations

Common Grounds Conversations is a lecture and conversation series that seeks to engage the Fordham community on contemporary issues in society, religion, culture, education and politics through a faith-focused lens.

Common Grounds has two different lecture styles: over a cup of coffee and over a pint.

Over A Cup of Coffee...

We have hosted theologians, former judges, philosophers, missionaries; priests, nuns, rabbi's and laity; members from both within the community and friends of Fordham. It is through open and comfortable discourse that we seek to bring our community closer and to foster a greater understanding between its' members. Come join us for a cup of coffee!

Over A Pint...

This is a unique opportunity for students 21 and over to explore contemporary issues and topics from a faith perspective in a casual atmosphere over a pint. Each semester religious and lay speakers facilitate talks to encourage thought-provoking conversations about faith and daily life that foster growth in, as proclaimed by St. Ignatius of Loyola, an “awareness of God in all things.”
