Great Decisions Lecture Series

Join the conversation and engage with top scholars on relevant global topics! 

The St. Norbert College Center for Global Engagement (CGE) invites you to attend our Great Decisions Lectures Series. Each year, the Foreign Policy Association selects eight critical global issues that serve as a point of departure for dialogue and debate.

Community members are encouraged to join St. Norbert College faculty, staff, and students in a rich conversation with accomplished experts. There is no charge for faculty, staff, and students from any educational institution (I.D. required). The cost for community members is $5. The Great Decisions Briefing Book also is available for purchase for $30 (cash and checks are accepted; no credit cards). Please view our FAQs page for more information.
