The Munroe Center for Social Inquiry at Pitzer College promotes interdisciplinary research and public discussion of important issues concerning society, cultures and public policy. Each year the Center sponsors a themed series of events, including lectures, seminars, panel discussions, exhibitions, screenings, and performances. Students of the Claremont Colleges can apply to be Student Fellows of the Center for each Fall semester. MCSI Student Fellows enroll in MCSI 195 PZ , which involves attending all of the Fall events of the Center, small group meetings with the Center’s visiting speakers, and the preparation of a semester long research paper. In the Fall of 2016, the Center’s theme of inquiry is ” Islam: Beyond Ideological Narratives”. The Director for 2016-17 is Associate Professor Ahmed Alwishah.
