the spirit of fostering understanding, each OSHER@Dartmouth member is
encouraged to share opinions and ideas. OSHER@Dartmouth class participants do
not attempt to “convert” others because there is a mutual respect for each

encourage participants with all points of view to attend and become engaged
through discussion and civil debate.
