Travel Bans, Border Walls, and “Bad Hombres”: An Evidence-Based View of Immigration Policy in the Trump Era presented by Brian Kovak
Date/Time: Apr 04, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 01:15 PM
Location: Hamburg Hall A301

Description: The current structure of U.S. immigration policy was created 50 years ago. Substantial changes in the economic, social, political, and security landscape during the intervening decades have motivated many unsuccessful attempts to fundamentally reform the system. The Trump Administration has now made immigration a central domestic policy focus. We have already seen unprecedented policy changes and associated legal challenges, and a commitment to construct a wall along the entire length of the U.S.-Mexico border. In this lecture, Professor Brian Kovak will discuss the current immigration policy landscape in the U.S., including common misconceptions, current trends, and scientific evidence, and will consider the likely effects of Trump Administration proposals in comparison to other alternatives.

Leadership Lessons with United States Army Colonel Chris Cox
Date/Time: Apr 07, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 01:15 PM

Description: Join us for a discussion about learning and growing as a leader with US Army Colonel Chris Cox. As someone who formally leads every day, he'll be sharing his journey with you. There will also be plenty of time for questions and discussion, so please plan to come as an active participant. As a career Army officer, Colonel Cox has served across the globe in a host of positions throughout his nearly twenty-two years of service to the Nation. These include three deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq, United States Military Academy faculty member, battalion commander, supervision of a $1 billion dollar Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction program, chief of future concepts, and chief of staff for a Counter-Improvised Explosive Device Task Force. Each of these posts required the practical application of analytic skills, interaction with culturally diverse populations, collaboration with academia, management of large amounts of information, leadership of small and large organizations, the synchronization of logistics, and the development and implementation of proposals at all levels within the Army. Chris is currently the commander of the only active duty CBRN brigade within the Department of Defense.

Air Pollution Under the Trump Administration: Will More People Die Prematurely?
Date/Time: Apr 12, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 01:15 PM
Location: Hamburg Hall A301

Description: Presented by Professor Karen Clay Beginning with the passage of the Clean Air act in 1970, the United States has seen dramatic improvements in air quality. These improvements have led to healthier Americans and contributed to longer lifespans by reducing air pollution-related premature mortality. The job is not yet done. In 2011 between 122,500 and 200,000 people died prematurely from pollution-related causes, primarily from cardiovascular and respiratory disease. To provide some sense of the magnitude, in 2011 there were 597,000 deaths from heart disease – the leading cause of death. The Trump Administration is expected to propose a weaker replacement for the Clean Power Plan, which would have reduced both greenhouse gasses and air pollution. Further, the EPA’s enforcement capabilities are expected to be significantly impaired under the current administration. If this occurs, there is a substantial risk that air quality will begin to degrade nationwide. States enforce air pollution regulation under EPA supervision, so there may be differential degradation in states with Republican and Democratic legislatures. Professor Karen Clay will discuss improvements in air quality and life expectancy since 1970 and some possible scenarios in which air pollution worsens and more people experience premature mortality under the current administration.
