Coming February 29: Frank Church Symposium

The 41st Frank Church Symposium will be Wednesday, February 29, through Friday, March 2, in the Pond Student Union at ISU. This year's topic is "Democracy in a Changing World."  The event is open and free to the public. You may come and go as you need to.   

Held every spring on the Idaho State University Campus, the Frank Church Symposium honors Idaho Senator Frank Church, who chaired the US Committee on Foreign Relations during the Vietnam War. His distinguished leadership and principles are reflected in the symposium.

The symposium is sponsored and organized by students of ISU's International Affairs Council. The IAC believes that understanding different viewpoints strengthens and enhances our community. Through presentations and open discussion they proudly present experts from around the country and the world who fulfill this goal. The opening lecture by Dr. Gawdat Bahgat from Washington D.C. is on "Egypt, Islam and the United States."

Parking in the Student Union Parking Lot will be waived (free) for this event.

Copies of this year's schedule are on the bulletin board in Room 125 of the Continuing Ed Building.  We are fortunate to have this event in our community. Please take advantage of this unique opportunity.
