Over half of these graduates have gone on to post-secondary education in Kenya.

From the quality of roads and public universities to environmental protection and social welfare benefits, the laws and regulations created by state governments impact the lives of their citizens on a daily basis. While the process of creating legislation at the federal level has commonly been criticized for the outsized role of interest groups, money and hyper-partisanship, the critiques are increasingly leveled against state houses, as well. In particular, groups such as the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the State Innovation Exchange (SiX) have repeatedly been cited for their excessive influence on state legislation. This course will examine the role of interest groups in state governments and, specifically, the degree to which explicitly partisan groups have changed the process and content of state public policymaking.

Both Martin Luther and Thomas More were influential men of the Reformation (1520s and later). Both saw the need for church reform. Luther left Catholicism and More tenaciously held onto it, condemning each other to hell as heretics, although we are not sure God listened. They both made their stands on individual conscience in an age that demanded unquestioning adherence to church and state authority and when separation of church and state was unheard of. We will discuss the lives of these remarkable men, the history of the church of their day and how these times shaped our lives today. Our class begins auspiciously on precisely the 500th anniversary of Luther posting his 95 Theses on the Wittenberg University Chapel door, Oct. 31, 1516. This seemingly insignificant act dramatically changed the Western world.

For most of our national history, Americans have proclaimed a distinctive "story" about who we are and how we understand ourselves in the world. This narrative has had shifts, tensions and multiple variants, but it has long reflected a basic unity about being a "special people." However, given the uncertainties of present geopolitical conflicts and the uneven nature of critical American strategies today, a major reassessment has become necessary. Fortunately, it is underway, aided by extensive social and political discussion and historical scholarship such as recent works by Jon Meacham and Philip Gorski. So, we return to the question of American identity and meaning: Do we still have a distinctive narrative? Are we still unified around a common sense of our place and destiny? Who are we? Or, perhaps better put: who do we want to become?

Read and discuss three novels by Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison, from her early-, middle-, and late-career. After introducing ourselves and Morrison at our first session, we’ll meet every other week to discuss powerful Morrison works delving ever further back into America’s past, in this order: in "The Bluest Eye" (1970) little black Pecola Breedlove prays for blue eyes like Shirley Temple’s in the years before the Civil Rights Movement. Based on a runaway slave’s history, Pulitzer Prize-winning "Beloved" (1987) portrays the haunting of Sethe’s family by the two-year-old daughter she killed to save from re-enslavement in the Civil War era. Finally, "A Mercy" (2008) interweaves the voices of a slave girl separated from her mother and those of the other “orphans,” multi-racial members of a Dutch trader’s household, in 1690. Our group discussions will be most valuable for participants who read the novels, available at the Reader’s Loft and Barnes & Noble front desks, new/used online (betterworldbooks.com offers used copies with free delivery), or as e-books.
