Speaker: Erik Laursen, Adjunct Associate Professor of Education

Location: Tyler Haynes Commons, Room 305

The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) hosts weekly Brown Bag discussions, open to members of the campus and the community, from 12:30–1:25p.m. on most Fridays during the academic year. Each week, a speaker or small panel leads a presentation on a provocative social issue, then opens up the floor for discussion.

This week's speaker will reflect on his experiences that demonstrate the similarities and differences between Denmark and the United States. Topics that he will touch on include: immigration, healthcare, education, youth development, supporting families and children in the workplace, and the rehabilitation of people who break the law. Free pizza will be provided.
