Announcing October 15 Talk / Elliot Sperling: Liberal Principles & Autocratic Regimes


What is the Student / Academic / Institution to Do?



Professor Elliot Sperling

Wednesday, October 15

5:00 P.M., IMU University Club (Faculty Room)

This talk will present some considerations on what shape principled responses to such a situation might take.
