University Forums on Current Issues

Under the leadership of the Office of the Provost, the forums incorporate broad sets of perspectives that allow for a deeper understanding of challenging current affairs.
Year of Diversity
The 2016-17 academic year is the Year of Diversity at Pitt. Learn more about this and the University's previous year-long observances—the Year of the Humanities (2015-16) and Year of Sustainability (2014-15).
The University recognizes the responsibility that accompanies the proper management of our resources and welcomes opportunities to communicate with students, families, and other interested members of the community about the achievements of our programs, issues that drive college costs, and the steps being taken to improve programs and contain costs.
