Newt Gingrich and Van Jones Debate
Thursday, September 29, 7:00 p.m.
Ursprung Gymnasium
Lou Higgins Recreation Center

As voters consider two polarizing major party candidates, what’s at stake, especially for the future of the economy? Newt Gingrich, a conservative former U.S. House Speaker, and Van Jones, progressive activist and CNN political commentator, debate how the major party candidates might lead the nation to economic prosperity. Jones, an environmental and human rights reformer and ex-Obama policy advisor, will argue the case for the Democrat Hillary Clinton, while Gingrich, who ran for president in 2012 and was an early supporter of Republican Donald Trump, will champion the GOP standard-bearer. The BW School of Business Leadership Lecture Series event will be moderated by political science professor and media analyst Tom Sutton, Ph.D.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?  CHANGING ETHICS IN AMERICA
John Quinones, ABC News
Tuesday, March 14, 8:00 p.m.
John Patrick Theatre
Kleist Center for Art & Drama
95 E. Bagley Road, Berea

The Emmy award-winning ABC TV journalist and host of the popular “What Would You Do?” prime time series asks us, individually and as a nation, to take a good look in the mirror. What do we do when we witness injustice, racism, bullying? Do we step in or do we step aside? Has the tenor of the 2016 campaign season affected how we respond? Having grown up in a poor family of migrant workers to become ABC's first Latino correspondent and a seven-time Emmy Award winner, Quiñones draws on his own powerful story to challenge his audience to think. This event is part of BW’s Enduring Questions: The Mark Collier Lecture Series.
