When Professor Russell Brooker set out to teach a course this semester on terrorism and the presidential election, he had no idea just how relevant the class would become. Just a day after the terror attacks in Belgium, FOX 6 visited the class as they discussed events unfolding in Europe, as well as the responses from each of the presidential candidates.
After the terror attacks in Belgium, many wondered whether it was safe to travel. FOX 6 talked with Professor Dan Leister, who is currently the interim director of Alverno’s study abroad program, about putting the danger from terrorist attacks into perspective.
When the College announced Dr. Andrea Lee, IHM would succeed Dr. Mary Meehan as Alverno’s eighth president, local media spread the news quickly. Here is some of the local coverage:
