Obama’s 100 day’s event

So there’s some sort of Gen Ed Now event coming up soon, I hear.


April 19th at 7:30 p.m. in Hassenfeld Conference Center.
I’m excited to hear from Prof. Stuart Altman and Prof. Peniel Joseph.
Also excited for the free food.

You going?

This has been pretty heavily advertised. We were asked to also promote the event, so why not?


Come hear a distinguished panel of experts evaluate the Obama Administration’s conduct in three key areas: the economy, foreign policy, and health care.

The event will take place Sunday, April 19th at 7:30 p.m. in Hassenfeld Conference Center.

Dr. Greg Mankiw, professor of economics at Harvard and former Chairman of President George W. Bush’s Council of Economic Advisers, will weigh in on the economy while former Ambassador and current professor international relations at BU Charles Dunbar will discuss the Administration’s foreign policy conduct. Dr. Stuart Altman, former Dean of the Heller School at Brandeis and former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health Policy, will comment on health care legislation, including the prospects and substance of a viable reform bill.

The event will be moderated by Dr. Peniel Joseph, professor of African and Afro-American Studies at Brandeis and a commentator on PBS, who will also provide historical background on the concept of a president’s “100 Day’s.”

Refreshments will be served.
