Dr. Martin HorningDr. Martin Horning, professor of economics, accounting and business administration, will present “Puzzling through the U.S. Financial Crisis” at the LINC Community Luncheon to be held Tuesday, March 17 at noon in the East Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center.

A 1971 graduate of Mount Union College, Horning earned a bachelor of arts degree in economics, a master’s in economics from Bowling Green State University and a doctoral degree in economics from Rutgers University in 1979 emphasizing work in labor economics, public expenditures and finance. In the fall of 1979, he returned to Mount Union as an economics professor and has served in that capacity for nearly 30 years. Horning was the recipient of the College’s Great Teacher Award in 1991. Currently, he teaches classes in macroeconomics, labor economics and labor relations, the economics of gender, economic development, comparative economic systems and economies of the Asian Pacific Rim.

The Community luncheon series known as LINC (lunch, information, networking, and conversation) that began last year 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 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. 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 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.”
