Foreign Policy Lecture Series
April 14, 21, 28, and May 5

Established in 1918, the Foreign Policy Association is a non-profit education organization and sponsor of the Great Decisions program. Great Decisions is a national civic-education program that encourages participants to:

  • Learn about U.S. foreign policy and global issues
  • Discuss multiple viewpoints in a group setting
  • Take part in a national opinion survey

LIR invites an expert, usually from a local institution, to discuss each program, and each session ends with lively Q&A. Tickets are available, for a single lecture or the series, for online purchase starting in March.
