Join students, faculty and alumni in an intellectually stimulating and socially engaging weekend of discussion and debate. We will consider such questions as:

  • Has September 11, 2001 led to an increase in the government’s need to collect massive databases to make us feel secure? 
  • What does this data reveal about you? 
  • Is the government the only one collecting data about Americans?
  • Will our Constitution change as a result of the government’s need to collect data: e.g., will the 4th Amendment’s protection against unlawful searches be amended?
  • Why does this data need to be collected?
  • Who will be the winners/losers in this data collection revolution?
  • What academic disciplines should be involved in this discussion on privacy versus security?
  • Do you care if everyone knows everything about you?
  • What can and should we do to prevent our loss of individualism?
  • How are we at Pace University working towards helping all understand the threats we face, both real and imagined?

Faculty Leaders: Dr. Joseph Ryan and Dr. Hasan Arslan, Homeland Security
