Adam Wilson - published on 07/17/13

The talk discusses how college students are prone to porn addiction, and how it affects them later in life

"Porn in the Dorm: The Impact of Pornography on College Campus Life" is the grave, but timely topic of the discussion to be broadcast live online tomorrow (7/17) at 12:00 p.m. EDT from the Family Research Council (FRC) in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Patrick Fagan, Senior Fellow and Director of the Marriage and Religion Research Institute at FRC, will deliver the talk discussing the troubling wide-spread use of pornography among college students.  Dr. Fagan will consider how college students are prone to addiction to pornography and the detrimental impact this has on their education, their relationships and their future.

The discussion is co-sponsored by FRC and The Cardinal Newman Society's Center for the Advancement of Catholic Higher Education.  Bob Laird, Director of Programs at the Newman Society, will introduce Dr. Fagan.

Dr. Fagan's presentation is part of a series of initiatives offered to Catholic colleges and universities recommended in the Newman Society's Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College.  Many Catholic college and university student life leaders, campus ministry leaders, and Catholic high school principals from the Society's Catholic High School Honor Roll will be present watching the discussion online.

You can watch Dr. Fagan's talk online at no charge or register to attend in person here.
