LINC Community Luncheons Scheduled for Spring 2009

May 25, 2010

The Community luncheon series known as LINC (lunch, information, networking, and conversation) will continue for the 2008-2009 academic year starting Tuesday, February 17 at Mount Union College.

The series was conceived to take advantage of the local expertise from Mount Union’s faculty and staff that exists in Alliance, in light of the College’s exceptional academic reputation.

The sessions are open to the public and will run from noon until 1 p.m. during the third Tuesday of the months of September, October, November, February, March and April. The cost for the lunch is $9, and will be served in the Hoover-Price Campus Center. A season ticket is available at a reduced cost. Sessions will be chaired by Doug Schwarz vice president of Alliance Ventures and executive director of the Greater Alliance Foundation, with comments and updates from Dr. Richard F. Giese, president of the College and Harry Paidas, vice president for public affairs and marketing.

The February 17 session will feature Dr. Steve Kramer, professor of psychology, who will present “El Salvador for Spring Break: Are You Kidding Me?” A member of the Mount Union College faculty since 1974, Kramer earned a bachelor of arts degree in mathematics from College of the Holy Cross and a doctoral degree in counseling psychology from the University of Texas at Austin.  Prior to joining the Mount Union community, he was a volunteer teacher in Baghad, Iraq and served in the U.S. Army.

The March 17 session will feature Dr. Martin Horning, professor of economics, accounting and business administration, who will present “Puzzling Through the U.S. Financial Crisis” and the April 21 session will feature Dr. Jamie Capuzza, professor of communication and chair of the Department of Communication, who will focus on “Global Advances in Women’s Rights.”
