OUR 75TH SEASON

        

David Madland

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Schofield Auditorium  ·  7:30 p.m.

TITLE  >  A 100 YEAR REFLECTION ON INCOME INEQUALITY


In celebration of the university's centennial year, Dr. David Madland begins the Forum series reflecting on one hundred years of America history and income inequality. With expertise in economic policy, employment, public opinion, economic inequality, and the middle class, Madland will discuss the future of our country's economic inequality.

Rick Steves

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

Schofield Auditorium  ·  7:30 p.m.

TITLE  >  EUROPEAN TAKES ON AMERICA'S WAR ON MARIJUANA


Travel writer and public television host Rick Steves sees the current prohibition on marijuana as strikingly similar to the prohibition on alcohol during the 1930s: ineffective, wasteful and counter-productive. Steves will argue that a European perspective on the issue offers alternatives - alternatives which may seem radical to some people in the United States, but which have been proven to work both in Europe and in his home state of Washington. While emphasizing that he is not in favor of drug use by anyone, Rick Steves believes that the European emphasis on harm reduction - rather than criminalization - offers a way forward for the US. 'Here we're tough on drugs - in Europe, they're smart on drugs.'

Liz Seccuro

Wednesday, February 9, 2017

Schofield Auditorium  ·  7:30 p.m.

TITLE  >  CRASH INTO ME


A keynote speaker who appears regularly before audiences of athletes, college students and adminstrators, law enforcement officials and legal professional, Liz Seccuro speaks on our current crisis of gender-based violence - what we've achieved and how we can do better. Engaging, witty and non-judgmental, she balances her own traumatic story and hard-won rehabilitation efforts with contemporary stories of survival and justice that leave audience members with a lingering sense of purpose, resolution and hope.

Geena Rocero
