Terry Madonna, director of the Floyd Institute's Center for Politics and Public Affairs, will moderate a panel discussion with Kenneth Duberstein '65, P'09, P'13, chairman and chief executive officer of the Duberstein Group, and former U.S. Rep. William Gray '63. The topic of the discussion will be the first year of the Obama administration.

A full slate of events for the semester is available on the Common Hour Web site.

Common Hour is a weekly, campus-wide gathering that will provide time for the entire College community to attend events without the constraints of other obligations. Programs will include discussions, presentations, performances and other events designed to appeal to a wide audience. No classes, events or meetings will be held during the Common Hour each Thursday. Afternoon classes will begin at 12:45 p.m.
