For prospective students interested in learning more about Parami Institute, we hold weekly Touchstones Discussions, moderated by one of our Parami Institute professors. Our goal is to let participants experience a typical (discussion-based) classroom at a liberal arts and sciences college. Topics vary from week to week and range from impactful development to cooperation. Attendees discuss the topic in small groups and then collectively elaborate on it as a whole towards the end of the session.
