LINC College-Community Luncheon Featuring Dr. William Cunion to be Held April 15

April 08, 2008

cunionwilliamWith the presidential election still very much undecided, Dr. William E. Cunion, assistant professor of political science and chair of the Department of Political Science at Mount Union College, will discuss how much this election is costing as the featured speaker for the next session of LINC, the college-community luncheon series on Tuesday, April 15 at noon in the East Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center.

Cunion’s topic will be “Election 2008: At What Cost?” Cunion, who joined the Mount Union faculty in 2003, earned a bachelor of arts degree from Xavier University, a master's degree from Ohio University and master's and doctoral degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was named as the College’s Great Teacher in 2006.

LINC (lunch, information, networking and conversation) was conceived to take advantage of the local expertise that exists in Alliance, in light of the College’s exceptional academic reputation.

“This is the sixth of six LINC luncheons and this one promises to be of great significance given the situation surrounding the presidential candidates,” Harry Paidas, vice president for public affairs and marketing at the College, said.  “There is no question this will be the most expensive presidential election in our country’s history and Dr. Cunion’s presentation will shed light on the issue.”

The sessions are open to the public and run from noon until 1 p.m. on the third Tuesday of the months during the academic year. Sessions are chaired by Scott Ingledue, chairman of the Board of Directors of Alliance Community Hospital, with comments and updates from Dr. Richard F. Giese, president of the College and Paidas.
