MC's next Great Decisions to focus on 'Food and Climate'

02/21/2014
Monmouth College’s next Great Decisions discussion forum, “Food and Climate,” will be held Feb. 26 at 7:30 p.m. in the Pattee Auditorium of the Center for Science and Business.
 
Lori Walters-Kramer, assistant professor of communication studies, will lead the forum, which is a timely one at Monmouth, given the college’s recent decision to focus on food security as the first issue for its innovative integrated learning program, “Triads for Excellence.”
 
Discussion will center on whether the U.S. can lead the way to climate reform, helping reverse an outlook that is threatening to wreak havoc on already insecure and vulnerable populations.
 
Walters-Kramer, who has a Ph.D from Bowling Green State University, joined Monmouth’s faculty last fall. She did her undergraduate work at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and received a master’s degree from Central Michigan University.
 
Great Decisions is a nationwide program sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association, a non-partisan, non-governmental association that works to increase Americans’ understanding of significant foreign policy issues.
