Take a tour of some of the world’s hottest issues! For over a decade, Truman State University’s Global Issues Colloquium has been helping the Truman community understand many of the most challenging questions, conflicted responses and hopeful developments facing various governments and societies.
What’s happening in the Ukraine? Ask David Robinson. How does resource management work in Africa? Ask Robert Hitchcock. What about national health care in Canada or France? These questions and more are addressed by various professional speakers during the colloquiums.
The Global Issues Colloquium meets monthly, on Thursdays, for about two hours. Topics change from semester to semester and everyone is welcome. Upcoming and past colloquiums will be posted on this site, and if you are committed to attending four colloquiums in a given semester, sign up for IDSM 400 to earn one credit hour.
