Overcoming American Tribalism: Healing America through Common Purpose
On Tuesday, February 16 at noon, the Office of the Provost and the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence will host the second installment in the North Star Seminar series. The event will feature Reuben E. Brigety II, the 17th vice-chancellor and president of the University of the South and former U.S. ambassador to the African Union.
Dr. Brigety's talk is titled “Overcoming American Tribalism: Healing America through Common Purpose” and will feature a robust conversation on how universities, society, and private citizens can better lead during these fractured times and develop a stronger sense of constructive civic habits. His talk will borrow heavily from his new work around the area of adopting important leadership lessons from the realm of diplomacy in our collective civic dialogue. The event will be followed by an interactive Q&A session.
This session will be moderated by Provost and Executive Vice President Ben Vinson III and the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law Jonathan H. Adler. This event is sponsored by Cuyahoga County Public Library.
