Rocky Mountain College to host the Wheatley Lectures March 14-15, 2019

The Wheatley Lectures, focusing on the theme “Creating Community in a Digital Age: Navigating Technology, Enhancing Connectedness” will take place on March 14-15, 2019, on the campus of Rocky Mountain College.

Technology impacts our daily lives in a myriad of ways. Some claim that technology is an invaluable tool, while others contend that technology impoverishes the way we live.  This event will provide opportunities for exploring our complex relationship with technology.
