Right, Wrong or Different?

Our next Right, Wrong or Different Program will be:

Topic: Global Perspectives on Free Speech with Professor Emeritus Don Boileau, PhD
Date: Wednesday, October 25, 2017
Time: 5:30pm-7:30pm
Location: Merten Hall, Room 1201


Does culture determine right and wrong or do values cut across cultural differences? Are you sure where you stand or does it depend?

We invite you to apply to join the interactive dialogue with other students and Mason faculty to explore how culture—our own and others’—affects how we perceive, interact, and lead. All students are encouraged to apply, however please note that space is limited. If necessary, students will be selected with the goal of achieving a wide diversity of cultural perspectives. This program is FREE and those selected to attend will receive a PIZZA DINNER as part of the program.

For more information please contact Nick Lennon, Director of the Leadership Education and Development Office at nlennon@gmu.edu or Mary Wells, Assistant Director for Internationalization, International Programs & Services at mwells11@gmu.edu
