At the beginning of every week, we provide a list of opinion-worthy events to expect during the coming week.
This afternoon, the General Faculty will meet in the Hogg Memorial Auditorium to vote on a proposal for a fall break at UT. If the General Faculty approves the fall break proposal, it will still need to be approved by UT President William Powers Jr. before the break is added to the University’s calendar. The meeting will take place at 3:15 p.m.
Also this afternoon, Dennis Lettenmaier, a guest lecturer from the University of Washington, will present “Climate Change and the Water Resources of the Western U.S.” The lecture will take place in JGB 4.102 at 3 p.m.
On Tuesday, University of Chicago Professor John Mearsheimer will present a lecture titled “Can China Rise Peacefully?”, during which he will focus on China’s political and economic ascendency and the extent to which its rise could create tensions with the United States. The lecture takes place in Bass Lecture Hall 2.104 at 12:15 p.m.
