F/M Communiversity is scheduled to host public sessions titled "Great Decisions: Foreign Policy Discussions" on Saturdays in March from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Riverview Place, 5300 12th St. S. in Fargo.
Great Decisions is a program of the Foreign Policy Association. Event organizers say it is Americas largest discussion program on world affairs, with groups meeting throughout the country. Each discussion will begin with a 30-minute video, produced by the Foreign Policy Association in collaboration with Public Broadcasting Service. The videos will provide an analysis and opinion from foreign policy experts and thinkers on critical global issues facing America in the year ahead. With the help of local facilitators, participants can share ideas and learn other perspectives.
Remaining sessions include:
- March 17 Middle East Realignment, facilitated by Ron Hagemann
- March 24 The State of the Oceans, facilitated by Chelle Lyons Hanson
People of all ages and educational backgrounds are invited to attend. There is no charge for the sessions because of the support of a grant from the North Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
F/M Communiversity is a program of Concordia College in cooperation with NDSU and Minnesota State University Moorhead. A "university of the community, it provides a variety of interesting and engaging courses with no tests, grades or papers for people of all ages and educational backgrounds.
