University Honors College - The Honorable mention

Great Decisions at the International Institute

Posted by Tim on January 28, 2019 in Community Announcements, Event, Networking, Workshops

As a UB Honors College alumnus, I wanted to share an event series that the International Institute of Buffalo is hosting that I think Honors College Students might be interested in. We are hosting Great Decisions, a nine-week community discussion series held in collaboration with the Foreign Policy Association (FPA).

The International Institute recruits local experts from universities and organizations to speak about critical foreign policy topics and to facilitate discussion among program participants. It’s an event that encourages community members to think like foreign policy makers on a broad range of topics.

All participants have the opportunity to complete national opinion ballots for each session, which the FPA puts in a report to the White House, the Departments of State and Defense, members of Congress, the media, policy researchers and concerned citizens. We encourage participants to discuss how national policies are impacting the local Buffalo community. The fee is $7 for walk-ins and $5 for educators & students. 

I’ve attached the GD schedule with the list of topics and speakers.  The Facebook events can be found here.

If you could pass this along to interested students, we would appreciate it!
