Mount Union College Community Luncheons Scheduled for Fall 2008

May 25, 2010

The Community luncheon series known as LINC (lunch, information, networking, and conversation) which began last year will continue for the 2008-2009 academic year, starting Tuesday, September 16 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 September 16 session will feature Dr. Frank Triplett, professor of foreign languages and director of international programs, who will discuss “From Russia With Love?” A member of the Mount Union College faculty since 1993, Triplett earned a bachelor of arts degree from Ricker College, a master of science degree counseling/psychology from the University of LaVerne (California) and master of arts and doctoral degrees in French from the University of Cincinnati.

The October 21 session will feature Sharon Luke, director of the physician assistant studies program, who will present “The Healthy People Initiatives” and the November 18 session will feature Angela Smith Alder, associate professor of criminal justice and director of pre-law, who will focus on “How Powerful is the President?”
