by Erich Wegenke,, 920-403-3089

Sita Ranchod-Nilsson, director of the Institute for Developing Nations at Emory University, will give a lecture titled "U.S. Policy Toward Africa" on Wednesday, April 15, as part of the Great Decisions lecture series. Ranchod-Nilsson will discuss the fast-growing economies of Africa, the United States' promise to favor good governments and healthy economies over profit, and how it can live up to that promise while securing its economic interests in the region. The lecture will also discuss the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa in the context of these issues.

The lecture will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Fort Howard Theater of the F. K. Bemis International Center on the St. Norbert College campus. General admission is $5 at the door.

Ranchod-Nilsson's lecture is the seventh installment in the 2015 Great Decisions series, a nationwide program meant to bring together local, regional and national experts to discuss various issues of international interest. The eight-part lecture series is presented on Wednesdays starting in February and running through April. St. Norbert College is one of three institutions of higher learning in Wisconsin that offers the entire series. Great Decisions is sponsored by the St. Norbert College Center for International Education (CIE).
