Election-Year Colloquium Series Focuses On Ohio Politics

3 June 2009 No Comment

During this hotly contested election year, Wittenberg’s political science department created an innovative colloquium series titled “Affairs of the State: Ohio.” The series brought to campus two Ohio officials this fall, starting with Lee Fisher, Ohio Lt. Governor, who discussed “Positioning Ohio for the 21st Century: Globalization, New Frontiers and the Future,” Sept. 24. A month later, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner visited Wittenberg and presented a talk titled “Preparation, Partnership, Success,” Oct. 28.

In 2009, two more officials will take time to talk with students. A presentation titled “Global Warming – Science or Religion?” by Ohio EPA Director Chris Korleski will take place Feb. 5, and a presentation titled “The Essential Role of Federal, State and Community Partnerships in Achieving Ohio’s Public Health Goals” by Ohio Department of Health Director Alvin Jackson is scheduled for March 19.
