Jon Western, vice president for academic affairs and dean of faculty; professor of international relations

Join Mount Holyoke's dean of faculty for a discussion of the state of liberal arts education in a dynamic and challenging global environment. Dean Western, who is also the Carol Hoffman Collins ’63 Professor of International Relations, will discuss the imperative of liberal arts education in a world with highly complex and interconnected global challenges. He will present how a liberal arts education, and an MHC education in particular, is preparing our students to understand and confront some of the most pressing challenges of the 21st century: climate change, resource scarcity, environmental degradation, global economic, social and cultural inequality, and globalization and its backlash, among others.

Open to all alumnae, students, and guests.
