Migration, cybersecurity, China and trade, and the state of the State Department. The World Affairs Council of Western Michigan once again tackles important global issues in its annual Great Decisions series, scheduled for February and March of 2019.
The series features diplomats, policy makers and practitioners, think tank specialists and journalists, using their diverse expertise to lead conversations on these topics.
This year, the series will offer two options to hear these respected speakers live: Monday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the Aquinas College Performing Arts Center and Tuesday at noon at Calvin College in the Recital Hall of the Covenant Fine Arts Center. Each of the eight presentations scheduled for 2019 also features a question-answer session.
Cost to attend the discussion is $10 per presentation, and $60 for a series pass. No reservations are needed. World Affairs Council of Western Michigan’s Corporate and Senator members attend free—as do the students, faculty and staff of WACWM member institutions: Aquinas, Calvin, Davenport, Ferris State, Grand Rapids Community College, Grand Valley State, Kendall, Montcalm Community College, and Western Michigan. The Council also broadcasts the series live to educational partners Northern Michigan University (Marquette, MI) and Rhine-Waal University (Germany).
WACWM is the local sponsor of Great Decisions, America’s largest discussion program on world affairs, produced by the New York City-based Foreign Policy Association (FPA). The Council has sponsored the series for more than 60 years.
