Neal will share his vast personal and professional experience with the bears in Glacier National Park.

Microbes, Megafauna, and Our Greater Selves

Instructor:  Doug Chadwick                                      


Schedule: Tuesday, 5/19/2020 , 3:00 PM 


Location: Todd Building,

Since the 1970s, the world's human population has more than doubled to nearly 8 billion, and wildlife numbers have dropped by more than half. Species and ecosystems everywhere are in serious trouble. Our efforts to conserve them have so far been no match for the scope of losses underway. This presentation will focus on recent biological findings that reveal how organisms function differently than previously thought, thus changing our view of and relationship with the natural world. These discoveries are fascinating, and what they tell us about the actual nature of nature - within us as well as around us - could spark major changes in societies' commitments to protecting the splendor and vitality of the only living planet we know.

Why Elections Matter: A Discussion of US Foreign Policy from WWII to Present

Instructor:  Robert Seidenschwarz                                      


Schedule: Wednesday, 4/1/2020 , 3:00 PM 


Location: Todd Building,

In a rapidly evolving media landscape, we wrestle with what it means to be an "informed citizen." Voting responsibly requires that people get accurate information about the candidates and the issues. This session will raise one's consciousness with respect to what our responsibilities are as Election 2020 approaches. We will consider a range of topics, including the identification of US interests and the geopolitical constraints thereupon as well as the state of current US policy and what it might look like under a new administration.
