LBW Community College is hosting a three-part, free honors seminar series beginning Feb. 7.

“Through funds provided by the LBW Community College Foundation’s mini-grant program, the Alpha Beta Eta chapter of Phi Theta Kappa will present taped versions of three lectures featuring NPR’s National Security Correspondent Dina Temple-Raston, Somalian human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Mike Dover, research executive and author,” said Heather Owen, LBWCC director of recruitment and PTK advisor.

The sessions will begin at 6 p.m. on the first Monday in February, March and April in the Dixon Conference Center on the Andalusia campus. The series is free and open to the public.

The first in the series is Dover presenting “Branding and the Customer-Controlled Market.”

“He has more than a decade’s experience leading the New Paradigm, a world-class think tank, and will soon publish a book about how companies are using technology to enable meaningful conversations with their customers,” said Owen.

On March 7, the Temple-Raston will present “The Democratization of Information in an Age of Terror,” followed by Ali on April 4, who will present “The Democratization of Information and Human Rights.”

The LBWCC Foundation funding provides the opportunity for faculty and staff to purchase products or services otherwise unavailable under institutional budget restrictions.
