    The University of Scranton held a political dialogue titled, “Freedom and Our Founding: What do they mean for us today?” In small mediated groups, students discussed the concept of freedom, the founding of the United States, and the role of citizens in democracy. Students then shared their experiences and listened to the perspectives of others.
