A special reception precedes the program at 4:30 p.m.
Moderated by Dr. Matthew Cordaro of the Center for Management Analysis in C.W. Post’s College of Management, the lively discussion will feature Dr. Moore’s views on the challenges and the respective roles that nuclear power, renewable sources and energy efficiency can play in producing a cleaner electricity supply and ensuring a sustainable energy future. A leader in the international environmental field for more than 30 years, Dr. Moore currently serves as chair and chief scientist of Greenspirit Strategies Ltd. in Vancouver and adviser to the New York Affordable Reliable Electricity Alliance.
This event is sponsored by the Center for Management Analysis and the C.W. Post Student Affairs-Faculty Partnership Initiative Committee (SAFPIC), a core group of 40 faculty, deans, student affairs’ educators and students who create programs to complement students’ formal classroom experiences. Scholarly talks, structured conversations, presentations on contemporary issues and the arts combine to offer unique opportunities for student engagement, critical inquiry and personal development. With the support of Long Island University’s Office of Academic Affairs and The Hutton House Lectures, the 2007-08 program theme is “A Year in Politics” and is carried through in several events featuring distinguished members of the campus community as well as prominent visiting guests.
Interconnected with this year’s theme is an emphasis on the environment, made possible through partnership with the University’s Department of Earth and Environmental Science and through co-sponsorships with the Center for Management Analysis, the Association for Campus Programming and a student club called P.E.A.C.E. (Protecting Every Aspect Concerning the Environment).
The event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Dr. Sherri N. Coe-Perkins, Associate Provost for Student Affairs, at (516) 299-2255 or via e-email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
