Great Decisions Lecture Series

Join the conversation and engage with top scholars on today's most pressing 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 faculty, staff, and students in a rich conversation with accomplished experts. There is no cost to attend the lecture series this year. The Great Decisions Briefing Book is available for purchase at St. Norbert College for $30 (cash and checks are accepted; no credit cards).
