Great Decisions Weekly Lecture Series Feb. 2-March 23

| January 29, 2015

For more than 25 years, Webster University alumni have participated in Great Decisions, an eight-week series of current event presentations and discussions led by Webster faculty. The series, organized nationally by the Foreign Policy Association, is designed to foster more informed and engaged citizens by bringing people together to discuss U.S. foreign policy and global affairs issues.

This year, for the first time, this lecture series is now open to any Webster faculty and staff in the St. Louis area who would be interested in attending any or all of the eight lectures. Great Decisions has become a popular lifelong learning opportunity on campus that also allows attendees to connect with our faculty presenters and other alumni.

The presentations will be held on eight consecutive Monday evenings, beginning Feb. 2 through March 23, from 7-8:45 p.m. in the University Center’s Sunnen Lounge.

Topics for the 2015 series include:

  • Feb. 2, India Changes Course – Robert Barnidge, Jr.
  • Feb. 9 , Russia and the Near Abroad – Warren Rosenblum
  • Feb. 16, Brazil’s Metamorphosis – Dan Hellinger
