Ambassador Peter Deshazo, director of the Americas Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C, will be the featured speaker for the Mar. 25 "Great Decisions" lecture at 7:30 p.m. in St. Norbert College's Fort Howard Theatre, Bemis International Center. His presentation, "Cuba After Fidel," is the sixth of eight lectures in the "Great Decisions" series.

"Great Decisions" is a national program meant to bring together local, regional and national experts in an eight-week lecture series discussing international issues of interest to the community. St. Norbert College is hosting the public event for its 27th year in northeastern Wisconsin.

Topics for the series are selected by the Foreign Policy Association of America and are intended to provide a local forum for discussion on current political and economic issues of the day. The speakers themselves are selected by participating colleges and universities. St. Norbert College is one of only two schools in Wisconsin that presents the entire series. (UW-Milwaukee is the other).

Admission to individual sessions is available for $5 at the door and briefing books are available for $15. The briefing book includes background information on the lecture topics and access to the association's web site, http://www.fpa.org, for resources, guides to topics and online discussion forums.
