The President’s Panel on Politics and Policy speaker series will continue on Feb. 28 with an address on social justice by Frank Bruni, MS.
Bruni is a New York Times Op-Ed columnist and the author of three bestselling books: a 2002 chronicle of George W. Bush’s initial presidential campaign, Ambling Into History; a 2009 memoir, Born Round, about the joys and torments of his eating life; and a 2015 reflection on higher education, Where You Go Is Not Who You’ll Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania.
As UMB President Jay A. Perman, MD, noted in his December President’s Message, there is much at stake in terms of health and higher education policy, federal budget priorities, and issues of civil rights and social justice as the administration changes in Washington.
“We’ll invite noted experts and thought leaders to weigh in on how the new president and his administration and the new Congress could alter the country’s course in each of these areas and how such changes could affect institutions like UMB,” Perman said in introducing the new speaker series.
