FAU Presents 'Nuclear Weapons: The Challenge Ahead'
BOCA RATON, FL (October 15, 2007) – Florida Atlantic University’s department of political science in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters presents “Nuclear Weapons: The Challenge Ahead” with General Robert Gard, Ph.D. (Ret.), senior military fellow at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, and Colonel William Hauser (Ret.), member of the Council on Foreign Relations. The presentation will be on Thursday, November 1 at 11 a.m. in the Senate Chambers of the University Center, FAU Boca Raton campus, 777 Glades Road. The presentation is free and open to the public.
The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation’s outreach program focuses on educating the American public and opinion leaders on national security issues. These issues include the debate about effective measures to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons, the importance of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and policy options related to the nuclear aspirations of Iran and North Korea. The goals of the program are to promote a better understanding of the ramifications of nuclear policy on U.S. security, and to encourage citizens to raise these issues with policy makers and in their communities.
This event is sponsored by the global governance track and the Peace Studies Program in FAU’s department of political science, and the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. The global governance track is offered by the department of political science at FAU to majors seeking specialized training in international affairs, and is designed to prepared students for graduate training in world politics and employment opportunities in the private and public sector.
